Copying Software on Demand


On this page

You can use the Command Center to copy the Commvault software package to the CommServe server cache and remote caches on demand.

Note: If the CommServe server and/or remote cache already has the Commvault software, the copy operation will replace old software files with new ones.


The CommServe server cache directory only supports packages from the current Commvault version. If you have packages from older versions, do not copy them.
