Editing selection lists

Editing a selection list affects all jobs that use the selection list. However, if you edit a selection list that is being used by an active job, the changes do not affect that job. If you want to only edit selections for a specific job, edit the job rather than the selection list.

If a resource on your selection list no longer exists and you want to delete it, you must use the View Selection Details tab.

To edit one selection list

  1. On the Edit menu, click Manage Selection Lists.

  2. Select the selection list that you want to edit.

  3. Click Edit.

  4. Edit the selection list properties.

  5. Click OK.

To edit multiple selection lists

  1. On the navigation bar, click Job Setup.

  2. On the Backup Selection Lists pane, select the selection list you want to edit.

    Select multiple selection lists to edit by holding down the CTRL key while clicking the selection lists.

  3. Under General Tasks in the task pane, click Properties.

  4. If you selected multiple selection lists to edit, do one of the following:

    To change all of the properties for each selection list, one at a time

    Click Edit each selection list.

    To change the priority and availability, notification, and device (for a central administration server only) properties for all of the selected selection lists

    Click Apply settings to all of the selected selection lists.

    If the selection list is being used by jobs, any change you make to this selection list will affect all jobs associated with it.

  5. Click Yes to continue.

  6. Edit the selection list properties.
