  • client displays wrong version in CommCell console
    Posted: 09-20-2018, 8:56 AM

    Good morning!  I recently completed upgrading all of my client machines to v11 agents, but I have a couple of machines that are still displaying v10 in the commcell console.  They are both Windows 2008R2 clients.  When I log in to the clients themselves, the CV Process Manager software is version 11, and the version displayed in the Control Panel is v11.  Is there a way to make the commcell pick up the new version, aside from deleting and reinstalling the software?  The backups are running perfectly fine, so it's not an issue with the agent software itself.

    Hi andi_c

    If the Process Manager on the Client is showing the correct version, then this could be a java or display issue on the GUI. 

    Could you please close the CommServe GUI then re-open and check the client version. 

    Give the above a try and see if the version display is resolved. 

    Thank you

    Thank you for the response -- unfortunately, it did not help.  I've also tried logging in to the commserve directly (RDP) and launching the console there - it still displays the wrong/old version in the console. I've also tried clearing out/deleting temp/cache files in the Java Control panel, which didn't help either.

    On the machine displaying the wrong version in the GUI, can you confirm what it states under the version located here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CommVault Systems\Galaxy\Instance<xxx>\


    In order to sync the version info correctly through the GUI you could try adding the following registry key to the client.
