Installing the CommCell Console

By default, the CommCell Console is installed as part of the CommServe installation. You can install additional consoles on other computers by using the CommCell Console or the installation package that was created from the Download Manager application.

Before You Begin

Prepare your environment by reviewing the following tasks:

  • Review SnapProtect requirements and gather the information that you must provide during the installation. For more information, see the preinstallation checklist for the CommCell Console on Windows or UNIX.
  • If you want to install the software in a different language, you can configure the installation program to list the supported language options. For more information, see Changing the Display Language of the SnapProtect Software on Windows Computers.

Choose the Installation Method

Use one of the following methods to install the software:

  • Remote installations, where you use the CommCell Console that was installed on the CommServe computer to install additional consoles on other computers.

    For instructions, see Installing SnapProtect Remotely Using the CommCell Console.

  • Local installations, where you use the installation package to install the console locally on a computer.

    Based on your computer's operating system, see installing SnapProtect locally on Windows or UNIX.
