Editing data protection volumes

You can use System Manager to modify the volume name for a data protection (DP) volume. If the source volume does not have storage efficiency enabled, you might want to enable storage efficiency only on the destination volume.

About this task

You cannot modify storage efficiency on a mirror DP volume.

Steps

  1. Click Storage > Volumes.
  2. From the Volumes on SVM list, select the storage virtual machine (SVM) in which the DP volume that you want to edit resides.
  3. Select the volume that you want to modify, and then click Edit.
  4. In the Edit Data Protection Volume dialog box, modify the volume name.
  5. Select Enable Storage Efficiency.
    If storage efficiency is already enabled on the volume, then the check box is selected by default.
  6. Optional: Click the Advanced tab, and perform the following steps:
    1. Select the caching policy that you want to assign to the volume.
    2. Select the retention priority for the cached data in the volume.
