Viewing CommCell Console Help

CommCell Console Help is displayed when the Help button is clicked in any of the dialog boxes in the CommCell Console. In some cases this Help contains descriptions for options that are not displayed in the dialog box. This is because some of the options are specific to a component, Agent or feature and the Help provides a description of all the options that can be displayed by that dialog box. Thus all the options described in the Help might not be applicable to your environment. Where appropriate, refer to the specific CommCell feature or agent for comprehensive information on the supported options.

Screen Readers

You can use third-party screen readers with the Commvault HTML documentation.
