Phoenix defines jobs for all the scheduled and maintenance activities performed on the Phoenix Management Console. Phoenix associates each job with a unique job identification number. The jobs are listed on the Jobs page on the Phoenix Management Console.

The Jobs page lists all the backup, restore, log requests, and defreeze jobs that Phoenix is performing, or performed. Phoenix categorizes the jobs under the tabs, such as  Windows/Linux Servers, NAS, VMware, and so on. A job can hold a specific status during its lifetime. If a job fails, Phoenix generates an error and lists the respective error code on the Jobs page. The Jobs page also displays job details, such as the type of the job executed, the resource name for which Phoenix initiates the job, backup content, start and end time of the job, and the status.

Note: Phoenix maintains the job history for 90 days.
