Information question renaming media pools

Veeam Logoby rikH » Wed Jun 01, 2016 12:03 pm

At present we have a number of media pools defined. One of the pools has assigned media onsite and some of the media is now stored as offsite copies. It has now been requested to change name of one of the pools.

If the name is changed will the onsite and offsite media automatically reassign to the new name of the media pool?
Or will the media have to be manually moved to the new name and will this be possible for the offsite media?
I’m assuming the media pool can be renamed by editing the properties of the pool?

Thanks in advance

Hi RickH,

You can rename the media pool by going to the properties and typing the desired name. If should take no effect on the assigned media (tapes remain assigned to the same media pool after it was renamed).

Thanks Dima,
:D
I thought it should be straight forward but I can't test it and it is better to be sure before starting.
