On command Protection Manager 5.0: recreate, rename volnames and how to reestablish existing mirrors/vaults without to re-do baseline transfer?

Use Case 1

What’s going to happen if you rename a Volname (source and target) with the existing PM relation?

Does Dataset reflect changed volname? How to do without to restart a new relationship for this case!

Use Case 2

How to recreate an existing relation which on both side the volnames are wrong means volsource_1  and voltarget_1. We like to rename botth volumes to volsource/voltartget “no_1” and not te recreate any baseline transfer and as well to have all snapshots which are existing.

PM supports vol rename of volume in dataset. As DFM tracks the uniquness of a volume by its FSid and not by name. So feel free to go head and rename your volumes from the filer side.

OnCommand/DFM will discover this change within next 15mins and there will be no change in the dataset side/ need for rebaseline with no effects to the existing snapshots or backup version.
