Modifying replication relationships

You can modify the following replication settings: encryption and remote container’s IP address/host name settings. To modify settings for an existing replication relationship, complete the following steps.

Caution: You should exercise caution when configuring the direction of replication for source and target containers. For example, target containers can have their contents deleted if they contain existing data.

NOTE: Because you cannot modify an existing defined role (source or target replica) for a replication relationship, if necessary, you must delete the existing replication relationship, and then recreate a new relationship with the specific source and target roles that you want.

  1. In the navigation menu, click Replications.
  2. The configured replications are displayed.

    Using the or toggle in the upper-right corner of the Replications pane, you may switch between tile and grid views.

  3. To edit the replication, click the elipsis icon and click Edit.
    • Tile view - the ellipsis icon is to the right of the source container.
    • Grid View - the ellipsis icon is in the Actions column.
  4. Modify the settings/values for the Source, or Target containers as needed.
    1. For Remote System, modify the IP address/host name and user logon credentials of the source remote system as needed.
    2. Review the replication details, and then click Save.

      NOTE: Replication needs to be stopped before the encryption settings can be modified.

  5. Click Save.
