Editing data protection volumes

You can use System Manager to modify the volume name for a data protection (DP) volume. If the source volume does not have storage efficiency enabled, you might want to enable storage efficiency only on the destination volume.

About this task

You cannot modify storage efficiency on a mirror DP volume.


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), and then click Storage > Volumes or Infinite Volumes .
  3. Select the data protection volume for which you want to edit the properties, and then click Edit.
  4. In the Edit Data Protection Volume dialog box, modify the volume name.
  5. Select Enable Storage Efficiency.
    If storage efficiency is already enabled on the volume, then the check box is selected by default.
  6. Optional: Click the Advanced tab, and then select the caching policy that you want to assign to the volume.
    This option is only available for data protection volumes in a Flash Pool aggregate.
  7. Click Save.
