Renaming robotic libraries and drives in the SAN Shared Storage Option

You cannot rename a server, but you can rename robotic libraries and drives to make them more easily identifiable. You may want to use names that are more descriptive of your operations, or you may want to identify the device by the user or location, such as DATA_CENTER_ROBOTIC LIBRARY.

The names of all servers attached to the SAN appear when Devices is selected from the navigation bar. Press F5 to manually refresh the screen and view new names.

The robotic libraries and drives can be renamed from any server sharing the ADAMM database, and the new names will appear on all servers on the SAN.


The Device Management window on other Backup Exec administration consoles may need to be manually refreshed before the new names appear on them.
