Hello,
Yes, you need to do next:
1. Disable all your jobs using the repository as a target.
2. Rename the reposiotiry.
3. Perform a "Rescan Repository" in VBR
4. Map the jobs back to their chains
5. Enable the job.
Thanks!

You can also use simple PS script:

Code: Select all

Asnp VeeamPSSnapin
$Repository = Get-VBRBackupRepository -name "Old name of your repository"
$Repository | Set-VBRBackupRepository -Name "New name of your repository"
Thanks.
