Phoenix agent log files

The Phoenix agent log files contain details of backups that the Phoenix agent performs. After every backup, a new log file is created in the Phoenix<YYYY/MM/DD>-<timestamp>.log format. If Phoenix agent does not function as expected, you can share these log files with the Druva Support team.

Note: Druva Phoenix retains logs for the last 32 agent activities on each server. 

Log location on Hyper-V hosts

You can find the Phoenix agent log files at the following locations:

  • Windows 2012 Server

Note: On Windows servers, Phoenix agent writes all logs to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Phoenix.

Phoenix agent configuration details

The Phoenix.cfg file contains the configuration details that Phoenix agents require to communicate with Druva Cloud. 

Note: We recommend that you do not modify Phoenix.cfg except when required. In scenarios where you must modify these configuration files, contact the Druva Support team for assistance.

Phoenix agent services
