Identifying a Laptop Client in Your CommCell Environment

There is no visual indication in the CommCell Console of a client's status as a Laptop Client other than including the client in a Client Computer Group with a rule of Client equal to Laptop Client.

Clients become Laptop Clients by any one of the following methods:

  • Selecting the Configure for Laptop Backup option when you install the File System Agent,
  • Running qscript enableLaptopBackup with the first parameter set to ON.


    qoperation execscript -sn enableLaptopBackup -si 'ON' -si 'clientName'

Executing Laptop2Taskbaricon.exe makes the Commvault Edge Monitor program appear on the Task Bar Notification area (system tray).

To automatically start Laptop2Taskbaricon.exe:

  1. From Windows Explorer, right click on C:\Program Files\CommVault\ContentStore\Base\Laptop2Taskbaricon.exe and drag to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu\Programs\Startup folder.
  2. Click Create shortcuts here on the pop up menu.
