This operation retires a client.
You can retire a client (for example, a server or a laptop) in the Command Center and CommCell Console. Retiring a client with no backup data releases the license of the client, uninstalls the Commvault software on the client computer, and then deletes the client from the Commvault system. Retiring a client also removes the client from backup schedules.
Note: If you perform the retire operation on a client with backup data, the operation releases the license, uninstalls the Commvault software, and retains the client. Overall, the client moves to the deconfigured state and the data is still available for data restore operation until the retention parameters of the data are met.
Caution: After you retire a client, you cannot undo the retirement. To add the client to the Commvault system again, you must add it as a new client.
