Getting Started

Getting started with SoleraTec's Phoenix VCM is easy. This section provides instructions on how to launch the Phoenix VCM applications, and then how to quickly get started with a basic Phoenix VCM workflow. The Quick Start will get you up and running, but it is the review of the topics of this User guide in addition to the Quick Start workflow that will help you become a master of your Phoenix VCM. See Quick Start.

Launch an Application

To launch an application, see the instructions under the operating system where you are running Phoenix VCM.

Windows

From the Windows desktop, select Start > All Programs > Phoenix, and then select the application to run.

Mac

From the Mac desktop, browse to Applications > Phoenix > Bin, and then select the application to run.

Linux

1.To launch a Phoenix application on Linux using a GNOME desktop, double-click Computer on the desktop.
2.Double-click File System > usr > local > Phoenix > Bin, and then double-click the executable to launch. (For other Linux desktops, this process is similar.)
Any executable that has "Svc" or "Cl" as part of its name is not an application.

The following are the applications in Bin to open. Depending on your product you may not see all the applications:

Open with UNIX:

When starting an application on Linux through a terminal shell using cd /usr/local/Phoenix/Bin/..., click the X button on the terminal shell to close the terminal and application. If you press CTRL+C, it aborts and the application closes. If you have not saved your policy, any new parameters are not saved.

To avoid closing an application inadvertently, start the application using the nohup command. Type (nohup ./VaultAdmin >/dev/null 2>&1 < /dev/null &) at the prompt. This completely isolates the command from the parent terminal shell.

Command Line with Windows

If using a command line, type the path, including the name of the executable for the client you want to launch. For example, type C:/Program Files/Phoenix/Bin/DataSvcPolicies.exe to launch Data Services Policies. Navigate to the directory that contains your Phoenix executables for available applications.

Any executable that has "Svc" or "Cl" as part of its name is not an application.
