Configure Organizations

In Phoenix, an organization is an access-based control mechanism to configure the servers for backup and restore. Organizations create a logical partitioning of the entities, such as servers, backup policies, and so on. Whereas, organizations share the storage, cloud administrators, and customer license. Based on the requirements, you can create one or more organizations or perform backup and restore using the default site provided by Phoenix.

You can perform the following tasks:

Select the Default site

  1. Log on to Phoenix Management Console.
  2. On the menu bar, click All Organizations and select Default Site from the drop-down list.

The Organizations page provides the details all the organizations configured in your environment. The information also includes the backup status for the File servers, MS-SQL servers, and virtual machines configured for each organization.

Procedure

  1. Log on to Phoenix Management Console.
  2. On the menu bar, select All Organizations from the drop-down list.
  3. On the menu bar, click Organizations.

  • Backup With Errors (): Displays the number of latest  "Successful with error" backup for the servers or virtual machines in the selected organization.
