Auto deploy Windows Phoenix Agent for Public and GovCloud

Overview

This article provides the steps to automatically install and activate the Phoenix agents on Public and GovCloud.

Keep the activation token generated by Phoenix at the time of registering the server handy before proceeding for deployment.

Auto deploy and activate Windows Phoenix Agent

To install and activate on Public Cloud:

@echo on
msiexec /i <Phoenix MSI Path> /qn /quiet /log C:\Phoenix_install.log
timeout /T 10
cd "C:\Program Files\Druva\Phoenix Agent"

PhoenixControl.exe activate <token> --ServerName <ServerName>

In the above commands, <token> is the activation token that Phoenix generated at the time of registering the server.

To install and activate on GovCloud:

@echo on
msiexec /i <Phoenix MSI Path> /qn /quiet /log C:\Phoenix_install.log
timeout /T 10
cd "C:\Program Files\Druva\Phoenix Agent"

PhoenixControl.exe activate govcloud <token> --ServerName <ServerName>

 In the above commands, <token> represents the activation token that Phoenix generated at the time of registering server.

Note:  The  server name is not case sensitive. You cannot have one server registered as "ABC and another as "abc". Phoenix will display the error message "Server display name already exists. Cannot register the server with same display name". 

You can upgrade Phoenix agents to their latest available version. For more information, see Agent upgrades.

The ServerName parameter is optional. If you provide the server name, then the defined server name is displayed in the Registered Servers page. If you do not provide a server name, then Phoenix picks up the hostname of the server by default and displays it in the Registered Servers page.
