Change dedup storage unit name for appliance

Created: 09 Jul 2013 | 1 comment

I have configured 5220 appliance as a media server with default dedup storage unit name. Can I change the storage unit name without reconfigure the appliance?

You cannot rename a Storage Unit in NetBackup (not in a supported way anyway!)

But is you mean just the storage unit and not the disk pool etc. then you can just delete the current one and then create a new one with the same attributes (screen shot it and look at it all carefully first) and then  edit your policies / storage unit groups / SLPs etc. to use that one.

Of course always do a catalog backup first and make sure all SLP operations are up to date and nothing running before making such a change due to having to edit your SLPs

Hope this helps
