Modify a file pool policy

You can modify a file pool policy.

About this task

Caution Image
If existing file pool policies direct data to a specific storage pool, do not configure other file pool policies with anywhere for the Data storage target option. Because the specified storage pool is included when you use anywhere, target specific storage pools to avoid unintentional file storage locations.

Procedure

  1. Click File System > Storage Pools > File Pool Policies.
  2. In the File Pool Policies list, next to the policy you want to modify, click View/Edit.
    The View File Pool Policy Details dialog box is displayed.
  3. Click Edit Policy.
    The Edit File Pool Policy Details dialog box is displayed.
  4. Modify the policy settings, and then click Save Changes.
  5. Click Close in the View File Pool Policy Details dialog box.

Results

Changes to the file pool policy are applied when the next SmartPools job runs. You can also start the SmartPools job manually to execute the policy immediately.
