Renaming backups

You can rename backups if you want to provide a better name to improve searchability.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click Resources, and then select the appropriate plug-in from the list.
  2. In the Resources page either select the resource or resource group from the View drop-down list.
  3. Select the resource or resource group from the list.
    The resource or resource group topology page is displayed. If the resource or resource group is not configured for data protection, the Protect wizard is displayed instead of the topology page.
  4. From the Manage Copies view, select Backups from the primary storage systems.
    You cannot rename the backups that are on the secondary storage system.

    If you are using SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Linux and have cataloged the backup using Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), you cannot rename those cataloged backups.

  5. Select the backup, and then click renaming icon.
  6. In the Rename backup as field, enter a new name and click OK.
