Hard Drive

  • 65 MB free disk space
  • 763 MB of temp space required for install or upgrade (where the temp folder resides)

Display

The minimum resolution required to properly display the CommCell Console is 1280x1024.

The graphical icons in the CommCell Console cannot be displayed in VGA mode. This affects the appearance of the toolbar and the CommCell tree in the CommCell Browser. Also, some table of contents is not displayed correctly.

Miscellaneous

The CommCell Console supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). See IPv6 Requirements for more information.

Service Pack Versions

The CommCell Console and the CommServe computer must have the same service pack version.

Java SE Platform

The software supports Java 11.

The Java version is installed automatically during the installation of this software. If you already have a system installed Java version, the software will install another instance of the supported Java version in the software installation path.

Note: Manually upgrading the Java version installed by the software is not supported. We always update the Java version with the latest security updates, so that the components using Java are free from any vulnerabilities reported by the open source community.

SELinux

If you have SELinux enabled on the client computer, create the SELinux policy module as a root user before performing a backup. The SELinux Development package must be installed on the client.

To create an SELinux policy module, perform the following steps as user "root":

  1. Create the following files in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory:

    File Name

    Content of the File

    <directory>/<file_name>.te

    where:

    <directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

    <file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

    For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.te

     

    The content of the file should be as follows:

    policy_module(<name>,<version>)

    ##############################

    where:

    <name> is the name of the policy module. You can give any unique name to the policy module, such as a process or application name.

    <version> is the version of the policy module. It can be any number, such as 1.0.0.

    For Example: While creating a policy module for the backup_IDA application, you can use the following content.

    policy_module(backup_IDA,1.0.0)

    <directory>/<file_name>.fc

    where:

    <directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

    <file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

    For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.fc

     

    The content of the file should be as follows:

    Note that the following list of files is not exhaustive. If the process fails to launch, check /var/log/messages. Also, if required, add it to the following list of files.

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCTreeWrapper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCVMAGuiImplgso -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2locale.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2osse.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDb2Sbt.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2trcapi.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDrDatabase.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libIndexing.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

    /opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libSnooper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

     

  2. Create the policy file from command line. Use the following command. Ensure that you give the following commands in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory.

    [root]# make backup_IDA.pp

    Compiling targeted backup_IDA module

    /usr/bin/checkmodule: loading policy configuration from tmp/backup_IDA.tmp

    /usr/bin/checkmodule: policy configuration loaded

    /usr/bin/checkmodule: writing binary representation (version 6) to tmp/backup_IDA.mod

    Creating targeted backup_IDA.pp policy package

    rm tmp/backup_IDA.mod tmp/backup_IDA.mod.fc

    [root]# semodule -i backup_IDA.pp

    [root]#

  3. Execute the policy module. Use the following command:

[root]# restorecon -R /opt/<software installation directory>

SELinux is now configured to work with this application.

DISCLAIMER

Third-party maintenance (minor) releases or service packs that are supported by the Commvault software may not be listed in our System Requirements. When possible, Commvault provides information on any known issues related to these minor releases or service packs. In some cases, these minor releases or service packs affect how the Commvault software works. Commvault software may experience changes in functionality as the result of the third-party minor release or service pack. These changes are beyond the control of Commvault.
