Support for Side by Side Installation of Maintenance Releases

Commvault now supports side by side installation of maintenance releases.

When you select Install Maintenance Release Only on the Update Software screen in the CommCell Console, you can do the following:

  • The latest maintenance release will be installed on the CommServe computer using the software that is currently in the cache. If there is nothing in the cache, the system will automatically download the latest available maintenance release and then push it to the CommServe computer.

  • For a client whose current feature release is older than the feature release that is installed on the CommServe computer, the maintenance release that is available in the cache for the client's current feature release will be installed on the client. If there is nothing in the cache, you must first download the maintenance release.

  • For a client whose current feature release is the same as the CommServe computer's feature release, the maintenance release that is currently in the cache will be installed. If there is nothing in the cache, the system will automatically download the maintenance release that is installed on CommServe computer, and then push it to the clients.

  • You can push to a client a maintenance release that is higher than the maintenance release that is installed on the CommServe computer. To do this, you must first download the maintenance release to the cache.
