Cluster - Support

The software can be installed on a Cluster if clustering is supported by the above-mentioned operating systems.

For information on supported cluster types, see Clustering - Support.

Hard Drive

CDR on Windows:

266 MB minimum of hard disk space for software

50 MB of additional hard disk space for log file growth

720 MB of temp space required for install or upgrade (where the temp folder resides)

  • 1 GB minimum of additional hard disk space on the source computer for replication log file growth; more is recommended
  • 1 GB of additional hard disk space on the destination computer for replication log file growth for each source computer (e.g., if five source computers are configured to use the same destination computer, then 5 GB of additional hard drive space is required on the destination computer)

CDR on UNIX:

250 MB minimum of hard disk space for software

  • 3 GB minimum of additional hard disk space on the source computer for replication log file growth; more is recommended. Maximum allowed is 80% of total space on the file system.

    Note: Refer to Data Replication for important considerations when allocating replication log file space.

Solaris Zones/Containers Support

The ContinuousDataReplicator should be installed on the global zone. Installation on non-global zones is not supported.

On the source computer, the ContinuousDataReplicator can be used to replicate data from any non-global zone.

On the destination computer, data can be replicated to a non-global zone through a exporting device from the global zone. See Data Replication on Non-Global Zones for more information.

For a comprehensive list of supported components, see Unix Virtualization.

AIX LPAR/WPAR Support

Data protection on Logical Partitioning (LPAR) and Workload Partitioning (WPAR) is supported.

Miscellaneous

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.

.NET Framework

.NET Framework 4.0 is automatically installed. Note that .NET Framework 4.0 can co-exist with other versions of this software.

Microsoft Visual C++

The following Redistributable Package is installed automatically. Note that the Redistributable Package can co-exist with other versions of this software.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

UNIX and Linux

The source volume for a Replication Pair must be a local volume.

Notes on Windows Installation

Microsoft Windows XP is not supported as both source and destination for ContinuousDataReplicator.

When installing ContinuousDataReplicator client on a Microsoft Windows x64 platform, you must install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.

Notes on Linux Installation

A compiled version of the CDR driver is supplied only for the listed versions and kernels. If you perform online updates of Linux, you may encounter a situation where the supplied CDR driver will not load after a reboot because the kernel has been updated to a new version.

If you are installing the software on a computer running Red Hat Linux 5 or above, the file system on the computer must be compiled as a kernel module.

For example: computers running Red Hat Linux 5 with the ext2 file system will not support the ContinuousDataReplicator software, as the ext2 file system is built into the kernel. Conversely, computers running Red Hat Linux 5 with the ext3 file system compiled as a kernel module will support the ContinuousDataReplicator software.

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. Platforms that are supported in the current version of Commvault software may not be supported in earlier versions of the software. Contact your software provider to ensure that third-party minor releases or service packs are compatible with the Commvault software.

Additional considerations regarding minimum requirements and End-of-Life policies from third-party vendors also apply.
