  • vSphere APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA)
  • virtual volumes (vVols)
  • Virtual Storage Console (VSC)

Answer

The procedure to rename Flexvols that are backing vVol datastores is the following:

  1. Change Flexvol name from system manager/CLI
  2. Perform a rediscovery from VSC and VASA webcli
    • Click "rediscover all" from VSC GUI Storage Systems menu
    • Connect to VASA webcli via https://<vasa-ip>:9083 and execute the command "cluster rediscover"
  3. Confirm volume got renamed
    • Execute the command “cluster list” from VASA webcli
  4. In the vSphere client select storage >> vvol datastore in question >> configure >> ONTAP storage >> confirm you see the new volume name
  5. If the volume is not showing the new name, then rescan storage in vSphere

Additional Information

Although this procedure is expected to be non-disruptive, we recommend taking a snapshot of the VASA virtual machine prior to the execution of the above action plan.
