You can use System Manager to rename a local tier or modify its RAID configuration.

Rename a local tier

Steps
  1. In System Manager, click Storage > Tiers.

  2. Click icon kabob next to the name of the local tier.

  3. Select Rename.

  4. Specify a new name for the local tier.

Edit the RAID configuration of a local tier

Beginning with ONTAP 9.11.1, you can modify the RAID configuration of a local tier.

Steps
  1. In System Manager, click Storage > Tiers.

  2. Click icon kabob next to the name of the local tier.

  3. Select Edit RAID Configuration.

  4. The Edit RAID Configuration page displays. You can modify any of the fields:

    1. Select a disk type.

      This field is not displayed for local tiers with a mixed RAID type.

    2. Select a RAID type.

    3. Select the RAID group size.

Note If you modify the RAID type, the RAID group size cannot be modified and vice versa. To modify both fields, you should modify one field, save the configuration, then repeat this editing process to modify the other field.
