Upgrades Using the CommCell Console (Remote Upgrades)

Use the CommCell Console to remotely upgrade the Commvault software on client and MediaAgent computers. Upgrades from the CommCell Console are known as remote upgrades.

When you perform a remote upgrade, the CommServe sends the binaries of the new Commvault software to each of the selected computers, and then silently upgrades the software in parallel. The computers are upgraded to the same version that is installed on the CommServe computer (including service pack updates). For example, if the CommServe computer is on service pack 3 (SP3), then the upgrade will include SP3.

To perform remote upgrades, the Commvault software must be available in the CommServe cache directory. If the software is not available, the software version that is installed on the CommServe computer is automatically downloaded during the remote upgrade.

Remote upgrades are useful in the following scenarios:

  • You want to upgrade the software simultaneously on multiple computers without the need to physically log on to the computers. This applies to large data centers or distributed WAN environments.
  • You want to schedule the upgrade to run at a specified date and time.
