    Renaming an Array

    Joel Sprague Newbie

      I've been asked to rename one of our arrays to make InfoSight a bit easier to read, etc.  Is there anything I need to be concerned about when doing so?  We currently are utilizing the array for iSCSI storage to a vsphere 5.5 cluster.  Obviously, I don't want to interrupt that access.  The array in question is a CS240G-X2

       

      Thanks

          No worries. It will show up as a "new array" in Infosight with all the trending beginning right when you make the change. There is nothing involving connectivity with the hosts that is tied to the array name.

            Hi Joel,

             

            You can modify the name of the array either via the GUI or CLI. I would certainly pick a maintenance window to do this as I do with all changes, but there should be no impact as the presentation of Nimble is at the group level not array level. I would suggest upgrading to the latest firmware release prior to making the change as a best practice. I hope this helps.
