Reconfigure a File server

Phoenix Editions: File:/tick.png Business File:/cross.png Enterprise File:/tick.png Elite

This topic provides instructions to reconfigure a server. You can change the backup set attached to the server to reconfigure it for backup. 

When you replace the backup set associated with the server, the content rule and the backup policy that the server follows also changes. Server backups follow the schedule defined in the backup policy of the new backup sets attached to the server. The corresponding restore points belonging to the previous backup set are not deleted. However, in case of common profiles present in the old and new backup sets, the restore points are retained.


  • You cannot change the storage at the time of reconfiguring a server. 
  • You cannot change a backup set for a disabled server.​

To change the backup set associated with a server, you must first delete the backup set attached with the File server and associate the server to a new backup set on the Servers details page.

  2. On the menu bar, click All Organizations, and select the required organization from the drop-down list.
