Backup Policy Type

Phoenix provides the following options to assign backup policies to the server group.

  • File/MS-SQL
  • VMware

Click File/MS-SQL to apply File server and MS-SQL server backup policies to the server group.

Note: If you attach a server to a server group, which does not have a policy type same as the previous server group, the restore points are deleted corresponding to the unmatched policy type. For example, if a server attached to a server group with File server and MS-SQL server backup policies, is reconfigured to a server group having only File server backup policy, then the restore points corresponding to the MS-SQL server backup policy type gets deleted.
