  • Renaming Storage Policy
    Posted: 12-22-2010, 3:22 AM

    Hi 

     

    Does anyone knows if there's any implication should i rename an existing storage policy to a new name and continue to use it?

    What will happen to those jobs that are being backed up previously?

    Any particular procedures/Steps that i should look out for?

    An example of what i am trying to achieve as below:

    1. Rename existing Storage policy called Files_Backup_SP to Arhive_Files_Backup_SP

    2. Create a new storage policy using back the old name Files_Backup_SP with different criteria for different subclients 

     

    TIA

    TY

    I don't see any problem with it. so far I know, you can rename a storage policy without problems at all...

    Implementing a new storage policy with the old name will not cause Commvault any troubles...

    Hello,

     

    This is a not a problem at all.  It is just a label so no harm in doing that.

    There are no issues or know problems with doing what you have described.

    There are no know issues with doing this. This should not impact restores or the indexed data.

    Yep agreed with everyone here, a rename is fine, i have done this many times without any issues backup or restore.

    The jobs backed up prior just stay where they are, nothing happens to them, still available against the new name of the SP.

    Procedure is just right click on the SP and choose Properties, then change the name and OK.

    Here are the steps from BOL. They are the same in each version. The change updates the database which changes everything associated with it. No harm.
