Modify a replication policy

You can modify the settings of a replication policy.

About this task

If you modify any of the following policy settings after a policy runs, OneFS performs either a full or differential replication the next time the policy runs:

  • Source directory
  • Included or excluded directories
  • File-criteria statement
  • Target cluster

    This applies only if you target a different cluster. If you modify the IP or domain name of a target cluster, and then modify the replication policy on the source cluster to match the new IP or domain name, a full replication is not performed.

  • Target directory
