Examples

Assign a new volume folder on a volume:

volume modify -name 'volume 1' -folder 'vol folder'

Assign a Replay profile to a volume:

volume modify -name 'volume 1' -replayprofile 'sample replay profile'
volume modify -index 61 -replayprofile 'sample replay profile'

Set the maxwrite value on a volume:

volume modify -name 'testvol' -maxwrite 16g
volume modify -deviceid 6000d3100000c90000000000000000cb -maxwrite 16g

Set volume cache:

volume modify -name testvol -readcache true -writecache false
volume modify -name testvol -readcache false -writecache true
volume modify -name testvol -readcache true -writecache true
