Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

Change a protection policy for a volume

A protection policy establishes snapshot and data replication rules for data protection. You can change the protection policy assigned to a volume.

About this task

If the current policy assigned to the volume includes a replication rule, you can only change it to a policy with no replication rule (which will stop this volume's replication) or to a policy with a replication rule that uses the same remote system.


  1. Under Storage, select Volumes.
  2. Click the name of the volume you want to change.
  3. On the Volumes page for that specific volume, click the Protection tab, and then click Change.
  4. On the Change Protection Policy slide-out panel, select a policy.
