Volume Names and Replication

You can have multiple volumes with the same name. The following list states conditions to consider if you have more than one volume with the same name.

  • A volume replicated within a group will have two separate instances with the same name but they must be in different pools.

    Both volumes will show up in the list of volumes with an indication of which pool the volume resides in.

  • Operations that would put two volumes with the same name within the same pool, for example volume move or pool merge, will fail.
