Modifying a Snapshot Name, Description, and Alias

You can modify a snapshot name, description, or alias. The alias (public name) is seen by some iSCSI initiators along with the iSCSI target name. It can help administrators identify the snapshot.

Notes: If you rename a snapshot, and the iSCSI target name alias is set to be the same as the snapshot name (as described in Modifying the Group-Wide Volume Settings), the alias will change to match the new snapshot name.

The iSCSI target name will not change if you rename a snapshot.

To modify a snapshot name, description, or alias, click:

Volumes > volume_name > snapshot_timestamp > Modify snapshot properties

The Modify Snapshot Properties – General dialog box appears (Figure 6: Modify Snapshot Properties - General).

To modify the iSCSI target name alias for a snapshot, click the iSCSI tab. The Modify Snapshot Properties – iSCSI dialog box appears (Figure 7: Modify Snapshot Properties - iSCSI ).
