PHOENIX4

Error Message: File does not exist for received input during backup or restore.

    For more information, see Event and Error Handling listed under VSS.

PHOENIX64

Error Message:  Phoenix internal error

Error Description: This error can occur if:

  • The files being backed up by the Phoenix agent are deleted or not present at the location.
    OR
  • In case of the MS-SQL server, if the DB file is directly present on the drive during the backup.

PHOENIX75

Error Message:  Administrator canceled the request

Error Solution:  Trigger a new request (if needed).

PHOENIX81

Error Message: Server not ready. Try later.

Error Solution: Contact Druva Support

PHOENIX82

Error Message:  Request not found on Phoenix server, request validation failed.:[Request was no more valid on Phoenix server.]

Error Description: This error can occur if,

  • Another request is in the process when the new request was initiated.

Error Solution:  To resolve the error,

  • Trigger a new request.

PHOENIX109

Error Message:  RPC method not supported.

Error Description: This error can occur if you are executing a feature on an unsupported agent.

Error Solution:  To resolve the error, upgrade the agent.

PHOENIX110

Error Message: The session is invalid.    

Error Solution:  Contact Druva Support.

PHOENIX146

Error Message: Requested CloudCache Server does not exist.

Error Description: This error can occur if you have only configured backup to CloudCache and the CloudCache server has network connection drop for more than 10 minutes.

Error Solution:  To resolve the error, check network connection on the cache server.

PHOENIX158

Error Message: Restore point not created as the backup a could not be completed in the available backup window. The backup will resume in the next scheduled window.

Error Description: This error may occur if the:

  • The request did not complete in the scheduled window.
  • A job has started processing but could not complete in the window duration. 

Note:

  • No progress logs will be displayed in the above case.
  • If the client is connected and the job is in the running state, data is transferred for the job. However, the error is encountered as no restore point is created because the request did not complete in the scheduled duration. In such cases, you may ignore this message as backup will resume at the scheduled duration and the status will change to Successful once the restore point is created.

Error Solution:  To ensure you do not get the same error:

  • Adjust the time for the scheduled window.
  • Run Backup Now instead of the scheduled job, to avoid this message for long running jobs. You will not encounter this message as Backup Now runs without any duration constraint.
  • Set the value of the Duration field in Backup Policy to '0' while configuring the server for backup. Zero duration indicates an unlimited duration in backup policy. This will enable the job to run without any scheduled window in case it is a long-running job. It can later be modified for incremental backups.

PHOENIX159

Error Message:  Some files were unable to be Restored/Backup.

Error Description: This error may occur for File server and SQL server.

Error Solution:  To resolve the error:

  • Trigger a new request.
  • If the problem persists, contact Druva Support.

Error Message: Phoenix internal error

Error Description: This error can occur if:

  • Two virtual disks with the same unique identifier (UID) are attached to the same virtual machine.
  • virtual machine contains multiple virtual disks that point to the same VMDK file.

Error Solution: Contact Druva Support.

PHOENIX170

Error Message:  Invalid credentials [ Invalid VCenter/ESXi host credentials (<host_id or vCenter name or ip)]

Error Description: This error can occur if you change credential for Vcenter/ ESX host and then do not add the updated credential in the backup proxy.

Error Solution:  To resolve the error:

PHOENIX175

Error Message:  There is no enough space on disk for operation.:[Restore operation can't take place due to disk space is not enough. Required space = <value> and available space on disk = <value>]
