How to Rename a Tape Library

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

You can use the default name assigned to the tape library or stand-alone tape drive when it was installed, or you can assign it a new name. When you use DPM to rename a tape library or stand-alone tape drive, the device name is changed only in DPM Administrator Console.

To rename a tape library

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click Management on the navigation bar, and then click the Libraries tab.

  2. In the display pane, select the tape library or stand-alone tape drive that you want to rename.

  3. In the Actions pane, click Rename library.

  4. In the Rename Library dialog box, type the new name, and then click Rename.

To rename a tape library using DPM Management Shell

  • Use the following syntax to retrieve the library:

    Get-DPMLibrary [-DPMServerName] <String> [-Verbose] [-Debug] [-ErrorAction <ActionPreference> ] [-ErrorVariable <String> ] [-OutVariable <String> ] [-OutBuffer <Int32> ]

  • Use the following syntax to rename the library:

    Rename-DPMLibrary [-DPMLibrary] <Library> [-NewName] <String> [-PassThru] [-Verbose] [-Debug] [-ErrorAction <ActionPreference> ] [-ErrorVariable <String> ] [-OutVariable <String> ] [-OutBuffer <Int32> ]

    For more information, type "Get-Help Rename-DPMLibrary -detailed" in DPM Management Shell.

    For technical information, type "Get-Help Rename-DPMLibrary -full" in DPM Management Shell.
