Configuring IIS for Windows Servers

Caution: After January 2019, Commvault users will not be able to access the web-based version of the CommCell Console using Java 11. For more information, see CC0013: Java Deprecation Warning Appears after Installing New Java Version.

To access the CommCell Console as a web application, configure Internet Information Service (IIS) 4 or higher on the computer where the CommCell Console is installed.
