System Requirements – CommServe

Cluster – Support

The software can be installed on a Cluster if clustering is supported by the above-mentioned operating systems.

For information on supported cluster types, see Clustering – Support .

The hardware requirements for CommServe installed on either physical or virtual machines is explained in Hardware Specifications for CommServe.

  • The software installation requires 10 GB of disk space on the operating system drive. This space is used for temporary files copied during the installation or upgrade of the CommServe and Microsoft SQL Server software.
  • For hard drive requirements details of other components (such as the MediaAgent ), see the corresponding system requirements pages.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 with Service Pack 2 is automatically installed during the installation of the CommServe software. Later SQL Server service packs and updates must be installed manually. We recommend to maintain the SQL Server up-to-date with any important updates released by Microsoft. For other important recommendations, see Considerations for SQL Server 2012 .

The CommServe also supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (including R2 Editions).

The Microsoft SQL Server application that is installed on the computer must be dedicated to support the software and cannot be shared by other applications.

In a clustered environment, SQL Server 2012 with the appropriate service pack must be installed and clustered prior to installing the CommServe software. The CommServe software automatically uses the default or the named instance created during the SQL Server installation.

Recommended SQL Server Settings

The database instance used by the software requires specific SQL server settings. Using the SQL Management Studio, verify the SQL properties listed below.

SQL Memory Size

Access the server properties and navigate to the Memory page. The maximum server memory should be 50% of the physical memory available in the computer on which the software is installed.

Server Collation

Run the sp_helpsort system stored procedure, and verify that the server default collation has the following properties:

  • Character Set is 1252/ISO (default)
  • Sort Order is Dictionary order, and case is Insensitive
  • Unicode Collation includes General Unicode. case Insensitive. width Insensitive

Temp Database Properties

Navigate to the tempdb database (under the Databases | System Databases node), and access its properties to verify the following:

  • The tempdb database has at least 100 MB of disk space. Depending on the components that you decide to install later, additional space may needed.
  • Click the Files page to check the autogrowth properties of the database files. The Enable Autogrowth option must be selected, and the file growth should be set to 20%

Note: To preallocate tempdb space or disable the autogrowth option in an Enterprise environment, allocate atleast 30GB space for tempdb. Monitor and track the usage of tempdb periodically to ensure that the tempdb usage is less than 20GB. If the tempdb size is nearing 20GB, contact the software vendor to investigate the reason for tempdb growth.

Service Accounts

For Service Accounts, use the same Local System account for each service and enable auto-start for SQL services.

On clustered environments, use an account with administrator privileges (such as, a member of the Administrator local group of the computer or domain).

Hardware Validation for CommServe Database

The CommServe database needs to be on a fast disk for optimal backup performance. Before setting up the CommServe, the storage volumes must be validated for high performance. This can be done using IO meter tool which measures the IOPs (Input Output Operations per second). For more information, see IOPs for CommServe Database Volumes.

Miscellaneous

Internet Explorer

Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) version 8.0, 9.0

.NET Framework Requirements

Both .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.0 are required and are automatically installed.

Note: For .NET Framework 3.5, if the server is Windows 2012 or higher, the role is only enabled during installation if the machine has an internet connection. If there is no internet connection, you must manually enable the role.

IIS

By default, the Web Server and Web Console packages are installed with the CommServe. To install this software, IIS must be enabled on the CommServe computer and meet the following requirements:

  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 8.0 or 8.5 (on Windows 2012 only)
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 7.0 (on Windows 2008 only)
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 7.5
  • All components of Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 7.0 should be installed on Windows 2008

By default, the Simpana software uses the name of the server computer (where the CommServe component is being installed) as the CommServe name. During the installation of the CommServe component, the software also allows you to specify a different CommServe name.

Note: The CommServe name cannot be CommCell . If you change the CommServe name during installation, do not change it to CommCell .

CommServe Database on CIFS

The CommServe’s SQL database is not supported on a CIFS share.

Java Runtime Environment (JRE)

The software supports Java 7 Update 17 (JRE 1.7.0_17) or later versions or any version of Java 8.

If a supported version of Java is not installed on the computer, you will be prompted to install Java 7 Update 17.

Notes on Combined Installations

Installing more than one Simpana package on a single computer is a common practice. For example, if the computer has an Exchange and an Oracle database, you will install the Exchange Database Agent and the Oracle Agent to protect the data from both databases.

When you combine multiple functions on a single computer, the storage resources required to support the software for that computer are not essentially cumulative. This is because Simpana packages share some of the same software. As a result, combined installations require about 30 MB less disk space than installations where the software resides on separate computers.

DISCLAIMER

Third-party maintenance (minor) releases or service packs that are supported by the Commvault software may not be listed in our System Requirements. When possible, Commvault provides information on any known issues related to these minor releases or service packs. In some cases, these minor releases or service packs affect how the Commvault software works. Commvault software may experience changes in functionality as the result of the third-party minor release or service pack. These changes are beyond the control of Commvault. Platforms that are supported in the current version of Commvault software may not be supported in earlier versions of the software. Contact your software provider to ensure that third-party minor releases or service packs are compatible with the Commvault software.

Additional considerations regarding minimum requirements and End-of-Life policies from third-party vendors also apply.

I know I can
Be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

Be b-boys and girls listen up
You can be anything in the world, in God we trust
An architect, doctor, maybe an actress
But nothing comes easy it takes much practice

Like, I met a woman who’s becomin a star
She was very beautiful, leavi’n people in awe
Singin’ songs, Leena Hawn
But the younger version hung with the wrong person

Got her strung on the sniffin’ up drugs all in the nose
Could have died so young, now looks ugly and old
No fun ‘cuz now when she reaches for hugs
People hold their breath ‘cuz she smells of corrosion and death

8 Things You Didn t Know About Drake

What s That Line?

8 More Hilarious Misheard Lyrics About Food

Watch the company you keep and the crowd you bring
‘Cuz they came to do drugs and you came to sing
So if you gonna be the best, I’ma tell you how
Put your hands in the air and take a bow

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

Baby, boys and girls listen again
This is for grown lookin’ girls who only 10
The ones who watch videos and do what they see
As cute as can be

Up in the club with fake ID’s
Careful ‘fore you meet a man with HIV
You can host a TV like Oprah Winfrey
Whatever you decide

Be careful, some men be rapists, so act your age
Don’t pretend to be older than you are
Give yourself time to grow
You thinkin’ he can give you wealth

But so young boys you can use a lotta help you know
You thinkin’ life’s all about smokin’ weed and ice
You don’t wanna be my age and can’t read and write
Beggin’ different women for a place to sleep at night

Smart boys turn ’em in and do whatever they wish
If you believe you can achieve
Then say it like this

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

Baby, ‘fore we came to this country we were kings and queens
Never porch monkeys, there was empires and Africa called Kush
Timbuktu where every race came to get books
To learn from black teachers who taught Greeks and Romans
Asian, Arabs and gave them gold

When gold was converted to money it all changed
Money then became empowerment for Europeans
The Persian military invaded
They heard about the gold, the teachings and everything sacred

Africa was almost robbed naked, savery was money
So they began makin’ slave ships
Egypt was the place that Alexander the Great went
He was shocked at the mountains with black faces

Shot up their nose to impose what basically
Still goes on today you see
If the truth is told the youth can grow
Can learn to survive until they gain control

Nobody says you hafta be gangstas
Read more, learn more, change the globe
Ghetto children do your thing
Hold your head up little man

You’re a king
Young princess when you get your wedding ring
Your man is sayin, “She’s my queen”

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

I know I can, I know I can
Be what I wanna be, be what I wanna be
If I work hard at it
I’ll be where I wanna be, I’ll be where I wanna be

Save the music ya’ll
Save the music ya’ll
Save the music ya’ll
Save the music ya’ll
Save the music

Use Your Cell Phone Instead of Your Credit Card #credit #card #swipe

Use Your Cell Phone Instead of Your Credit Card

Ever wish you could pay for something with your cell phone? Chances are if your friends have kids, they’ll whip out their cell phone to show you pictures. So why not put other staples of the wallet–such as driver’s license, credit cards, and membership cards–on the cell?

Although we’re a ways off from putting driver’s license info on our handset, we can now link a credit card to our mobile, allowing us to pay for things like restaurant bills, parking meters, and cab fares using our phone. This is a promising concept, but the services are not yet nationwide, and the process needs fine-tuning, as I found in some recent hands-on trials.

For starters, I tested Watertown, Massachusetts-based MobileLime. It’s one of the first mobile payment systems in the United States that lets you use any cell phone on any carrier to pay for goods and services. MobileLime works only at merchants that have partnered with it. For now, the service is limited to a few dozen vendors in the Boston area and one in upstate New York.

Tryout in Boston

Registering for MobileLime was straightforward: I went to the company’s site, put in my phone and contact information, and then chose whether to link my phone number to my credit card or a prepaid account. Linking to a bank account is not yet an option, but MobileLime says that it will provide that service if customers ask for it.

I used MobileLime for lunch at Boston’s Sunset Cantina. When I walked in, I called MobileLime’s toll-free number using my Treo 600. The automated system asked me for the restaurant’s location number, a unique identifier assigned by MobileLime. I asked the hostess for this code. She looked confused for a moment and then said, “Oh, you’re using LimeWire [a file-sharing service].”

She asked the owner, who didn’t know the number, either. Fortunately, Matthew, one of the servers knew the code. I punched it in, hung up, ate lunch, and at the end called in again with the amount and approved the tip MobileLime’s automated system suggested. Matthew asked for the last four digits of my phone number and came back with a receipt.

I realized later that I could’ve called in only once–at the end of the transaction. When, for example, I went to Toscanini’s, a Cambridge ice cream shop, I paid in just one call.

Carlsbad, California-based Black Lab Mobile is a service similar to MobileLime. It is beta-testing its payment system that retailers, such as theaters and restaurants, can use to let their customers pay by cell phone. Black Lab President and CEO James Linlor says the service should be available this fall. For now, you can only send money to another Black Lab user through your mobile phone–say, to cover your Friday-night poker losses.

To do that, you tie a credit-card-based account to your phone number and supply the recipient’s phone number. Put in an amount, and your bet is paid off.

Cell Phone Meter Feeders

In Coral Gables, Florida, the city parking department contracted with Toronto’s Mint Technologies for its PayMint parking-meter payment system. One of about 1500 users is Hank Klein, the 61-year-old vice chairman of Codina Realty Services, who says PayMint makes his life easier–no more scrounging for coins. If a meeting runs over, he simply calls in and extends his time.

If he forgets to call in and tell the service he’s left his parking space, PayMint will send a text message to his phone to ask if he’s still there. Klein wishes he could use PayMint for more than just parking meters. “I’d love to use my phone to pay for everything,” he says. (In Las Vegas, Oklahoma City, and Yonkers, New York, another company–MPark –offers a service similar to PayMint.)

Paying for everything using your cell phone will be at least a couple of years off in the United States, estimates Mint Technologies president, Frank Maduri. The company is first testing credit cards embedded with radio frequency identification chips. The next logical step is to have cell phones with these RFIDs–which could make payments easier than MobileLime’s process, as no calls would be required.

Phone manufacturers are developing RFID-enabled phones for monetary transactions and other uses such as gaming and networking. Nokia offers a version of its 3220 phone with a built-in RFID, and Motorola is testing several phones that use this technology. Still, the biggest demand for such phones is likely to come first in wireless phone hotbeds like Japan.

Wallet-Free Future?

Indeed, in Japan and in Finland people already buy goods via their phones. But even in those countries, a wide-ranging payment system is still an emerging idea. (By the way, don’t confuse this process with the micropayments that let you buy such things as ringtones, games, and graphics to download to your phone.)

NTT DoCoMo, for example, Japan’s largest wireless company, has been encouraging its users to pay for things with their cell phones. It even bought a stake in Sumitomo Bank and is using C-Sam’s OneWallet software so it can more efficiently handle transactions.

Once all the players do figure out these procedures and technologies, payments by cell phone and the resulting wallet-free culture could be a big thing.
