- Enables you to open the Edit Vault Relationship window or the Edit Mirror Relationship window, which you can use to edit the schedule and policy of a relationship.
- Enables you to open the Delete Vault Relationship window or the Delete Mirror Relationship window, which you can use to delete a relationship.
