IPv6 Support

IPv6 is supported on all Commvault-supported Windows, UNIX and Linux file system, application, and database agents except for the following exceptions:

  • 1-Touch recovery of clients is not supported with IPv6.
  • For Windows computers, only Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and later Windows versions support IPv6.
  • The Optimize for Concurrent LAN Backups option is not supported for AIX MediaAgents using the IPv6 protocol.


  • If a client computer uses IPv6, the CommServe and MediaAgent computers must also use IPv6.
  • If you use IPv6 on a client, make sure that the hostname of the client resolves to the IPv6 address.
