This section describes procedures to update credentials of a NAS devices and the steps to remove a NAS device from the Phoenix Management Console.

Only a cloud administrator can delete a NAS device from the management console. If you are a group administrator, you can delete a server that belongs to the administrator group that you manage. After you delete a server, Phoenix purges the backup data of that server from the warm storage, thus freeing up space.  

Update NAS device credentials

The NAS device credentials updated using these steps are validated when you add shares to the NAS device. NAS proxy uses these credentials to access NAS shares during the backup and restore operations.

  1. Log on to Phoenix Management Console.
  2. On the menu bar, click All Organizations, and select the organization configured with NAS devices.
  3. On the menu bar, click NAS
  4. Under NAS Devices tab, select the NAS device for which you want to update the credentials.
  5. Click Update Credentials
  6. Enter the new NAS device credentials on the Update Credentials window.
  7. Click Save

Note: You cannot edit or update the IP/FQDN field for a device.

  • You configured the NAS device during evaluation, and you now want to reclaim the storage consumed.
  • You are planning to deprecate the NAS device, and you no longer need to keep the data.
  • You are planning to replace the NAS devices, and a backup of the replacement servers might consume additional storage for the same data.
  • You no longer want to back up a NAS device.
