how to add a date in a given volume name as volname_MMDDYYY.

While creating or while renaming a cDOT volume ?

 

Is there a function that returns the current date ?

 

Any one already done this ?

 

Thanks

Use powershell cmdlet:

 

$date = get-date -Format _MMddyyyy

 

Now add this to your volume name string.

Hi Sinhaa,

    Couple of questions.

1.Where do I define the $date = get-date -Format _MMddyyyy in the resize command ?

 

2.And  if defined $date,then  that would also appear as a input in the inputs tab right ?

 

But I dont want that, just add the current date to the volumename as <volname>_MMDDYYY.

 

Regards

In the powershell command you can append the date to the Volume name.

You can append the date to the volume in the command code.

Attached .png file shows an example.

This command is downloadable from automationstore.netapp.com.
