Renaming SVMs

You can rename a Storage Virtual Machine (SVM) by using the vserver rename command. For example, you can rename an SVM when you want the SVM to have a unique name. You cannot rename a node or admin SVM by using the vserver rename command.

Before you begin

The SVM being renamed must not be in an SVM peer relationship.

Steps

  1. Use the vserver rename command to rename an SVM.
    Example
    The following example shows how to rename the SVM named vs1.example.com as vs2.example.com:
    Cluster1::> vserver rename -vserver vs1.example.com -newname vs2.example.com
    For more information about this command, see the man pages.
  2. Use the vserver show command to view the changes in the SVM's name.
