Postinstallation Tasks for Clients

Based on your environment settings, or the installation options that you set, you might have to perform some postinstallation tasks to complete the client installation.

The following sections describe general tasks for Windows and UNIX clients.

Windows

  • Configure Cluster Group Clients

    If you installed agents in a cluster environment, you must configure a cluster group client, and if applicable, failover settings. For more information, see:

  • Add SnapProtect to the Windows Firewall Exclusion List

    If you did not add the SnapProtect programs and services to the Windows Firewall exclusion list during the installation, you can add them later by using a batch file. For more information, see Configuring Windows Firewall to Allow CommCell Communication.

  • Complete Firewall Configurations

    If you configured firewall settings during the installation, you must complete additional firewall configurations from the CommCell Console. For more information, see Firewall: Overview.

  • Enable Application-Aware Installs

    You can configure the SnapProtect software to automatically detect the installed client applications and then install the corresponding SnapProtect packages when you:

    • Plan to add additional applications after you install the  SnapProtect software
    • Plan to refresh the hardware
    • Have managed service provider configuration

    For information on how to enable this feature, see Enabling Application-Aware Installations.

UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh

  • Complete Firewall Configurations

    If you configured firewall settings during the installation, you must complete additional firewall configurations from the CommCell Console. For more information, see Firewall - Getting Started - Overview.

  • Change UNIX Groups and Access Permissions on UNIX Clients

    If you need to change the UNIX group and access permissions that you defined during the installation, see Changing UNIX Groups and Permissions on UNIX Clients.

    Note: You must perform this task when you install a database on an existing client and the packages have different permissions.

  • Set Read Permissions on AIX Clients

    If you installed agents on an AIX computer, and you did not set read permissions for other users during the installation, see Setting Read Permissions on AIX Clients.

  • View Files Created During the Installation

    For some agents, additional files and folders are created outside the installation directory. If you want to view the files and folders that were created outside the installation directory, see Files and Folders Created During UNIX Installations.
