This topic discusses steps to be performed on the AWS proxy to enable debug. The procedure helps in troubleshooting failures during the DR failover job


  1. Login to AWS proxy with the default user name centos.

    1. Go to the AWS Console > EC2 Console.

    2. From the IPV4 Public IP field, copy the proxy server IP.

    3. From the Key pair name field, see the key pair associated with the proxy server.

    4. Using an SSH client (for example, Putty), connect to the proxy server. For detailed steps to connect to an EC2 instance, see AWS documentation.

    5. Specify the hostname or IP.

    6. Provide the key pair you had associated with the proxy server.

  3. Stop Druva services.
    /etc/init.d/Phoenix stop
