File Server/Hyper-V/SQL server backup fails with PHOENIX189
File Server/Hyper-V/SQL server backup fails with PHOENIX189
Updated over a week ago

Problem description

File server, Hyper-V, and SQL server backups in Phoenix can fail with error PHOENIX189 if these servers have migrated to newer servers, and the old servers are still running the Druva agent.


Phoenix registers every server with a unique device ID for identification. The new server isn't registered with Phoenix yet since Phoenix still has entries of the device ID of the older server.



Error validating server certificate : (10054, 'WSAECONNRESET')
The session is invalid. (#10000006e)

To resolve this issue, perform the following tasks:

  1. Stop the Druva agent service on the old server and rename the Phoenix directory C:\ProgramData\Phoenix to Phoenix_old.

  2. Re-register the new server. This will create a unique device ID for the new server in Phoenix.
