Win2008-R2, VSF-5.1, Device name change

Created: 08 Oct 2011 • Updated: 09 Dec 2011 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have a situation where we need to rename CD drive from such as D: and E: to X; and Y: . We usually do this before loading and setting up Veritas Storage by using the Microsoft Disk Tool in Device Management. Once VSF is loaded this tool is no-longer available and we cannot use it to rename the drive letter. A CD drive was left as E: and now that VSF is loaded we can not find a way to change its letter, since VSF has taken over the tool we normally use. Does anyone know how we may now change the drive letter on this CD device so when one looks a file explorer, the drive will no longer show as E: but as X: for instance. ?

In the VSF GUI - VEA (Veritas Enterprise Manager), right click on volume/drive and choose "Filesystem" option and you can change drive letter here.

Hi wellwell1212,

In addition to what Mike mentions, you can still run Windows Disk Manager even with SFW installed.  To start Windows Disk Manager, run "MMC" and select File -> Add/Remove Snap-in... -> select "Disk Manager".

Thanks,

Wally
