Druva Phoenix now allows you to assign credentials to Windows Servers and MS-SQL Servers. These credentials are in turn assigned to the Phoenix service on the Windows file server and persist through the agent upgrades. Phoenix stores these credentials securely. When you assign a credential to a server, Phoenix automatically assigns it to the Phoenix service on the Windows file server, and this credential does not get overwritten by default user settings during an agent upgrade. Assigning credentials to Windows file servers and SQL servers is not mandatory during server registration.
You can manage credentials for Windows servers and MS-SQL Servers from the All Servers page under Windows/Linux Servers.
The Credentials column in the All Servers page displays the credentials assigned to each server in the list. If a credential is incorrect, the Credentials column displays an Invalid Credentials warning. The validation status is displayed if the Client Version on the Windows server is up to date.
Note: Though you can assign credentials to Linux servers, these credentials do not persist post the Phoenix agent upgrade. Phoenix does not display the validation status for Linux servers.
You can use the Manage Credentials button to:
- Create a new credential
- Assign credentials
- Unassign credentials
Note: You can Update or Delete credentials from Settings > Credential Store. For more information, see the Credentials Store article.
Log in to the Phoenix management console.
In the menu bar at the top, click All Organizations, and then select your organization.
Click Protect > Windows/Linux servers.
In the All Servers tab, select the server whose credentials you want to manage, and then click Manage Credentials.
In the Manage Server Credentials dialog box, perform the following tasks:
Create a new credential. In the Add Credentials dialog box, enter the following details:
|Assign||Assign the selected credential to the server. The selected credential replaces any previously assigned credential.|
Unassign the selected credential from the server.
Note: Some functions like a client upgrade may not work if the credentials are unassigned from the server.
Note: You can use the same credential for multiple servers. However, a server can only be assigned a single credential.
