Installer: Enter Additional Install Options

Use this page in the wizard to select advanced options for the installation job.

Disable Windows Firewall

Select to disable firewall on Windows client computers.

Add programs to the Windows Firewall Exclusion List (if Windows Firewall is ON on the remote client)

Select to add programs to the Windows Firewall Exclusion List if firewall is enabled on Windows client computers.

Reboot (if required)

Select to automatically reboot the client computer during installation, whenever is needed.

If this option is not selected, the client is not rebooted even if a reboot is required.

Use this option if the install includes a driver update. If not selected, the software required for the computer will not be installed.

Kill Browser Processes (if required)

Select to automatically terminate any open browser processes on the client computers during the installation. Use this option to ensure a successful completion of the installation.

Ignore Running Jobs

Select to install the software on the selected clients even if jobs are currently running. When the option is enabled, the services are temporarily stopped, and all running jobs are suspended to allow the installation to complete.

After the installation, restartable jobs are automatically resumed, if configured to do so.

Restart Oracle/DB2 services (if applicable. Oracle/DB2 Instances need to be restarted to load Simpana Media Library for Data protection.)

Use this option to automatically stop and start the database services if you install the following Windows agents:

  • DB2
  • Oracle
  • SAP Oracle

On HP-UX computers, you need to manually restart the DB2 services.

Install Agents For Restore Only

Select to use the client computer only as a destination for restoring backup data. The agent software will be installed without consuming any license.

Ignore Client/Host Name Conflict

Select to ignore the name conflict between the host name and client name during installation.

Skip clients that are already part of the CommCell component

Select to skip client computers that already have the SnapProtect packages you selected. This option is visible when you select to automatically discover client computers during the first pages of the wizard.

Install new instance (if required)

Select this option if you want to install the software on a new instance. The client must have at least one SnapProtect instance installed.

This option is useful in the following scenarios:

  • 32-bit and 64-bit mixed environments

    Suppose you have a 64-bit Windows computer with a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit applications. By default, SnapProtect installs 64-bit agents to protect the application data. To protect 32-bit applications, you can install the 32-bit version of the agent in a new instance.

  • Client pointing to different CommCells

    Suppose you have a CommCell environment with two CommServe computers (A and B) and a client computer with a large file system data and Exchange Server applications. The client already has an instance pointing to CommServe A with the Windows File System Agent.

    To offload resources from CommServe A, you can install the Exchange Agent on a new instance that points to CommServe B. The backup jobs will be handled separately by CommServe A and B.

The following table summarizes on how this option affects the installation:

Option Status Installation Behavior
The option is selected
  • If the client already has an instance pointing to the same CommServe, the port usage will determine the installation behavior as follows:
    • If you use the default port, the software will be installed on the existing instance.
    • If you specify the port used by the existing instance, the installation will fail.

      To install the software on a new instance, you have to specify a port that is not used by the existing instance.

  • If the client has an instance pointing to a different CommServe, the software will be installed on a new instance.
The option is NOT selected
  • If the client already has an instance pointing to the same CommServe, the port usage will determine the installation behavior as follows:
    • If you use the default port, the software will be installed on the existing instance.
    • If you specify a different port number, the installation will fail.
  • If the client has an instance pointing to a different CommServe, the installation will fail.

Install 32-bit instead of default 64-bit packages (Windows x64 only) - This will protect 32-bit applications only

If you want to protect 32-bit applications running on Windows 64-bit clients that you specified, select this option to install the 32-bit binaries of the software packages you selected.

By default, when this option is not enabled, the CommCell Console installs the 64-bit binaries of the packages you selected.
