Modifying a Volume in the MapR Control System

You can modify any attributes of an existing volume, except that normal (read-write) volumes cannot be converted to mirror (read-only) volumes.

You can modify a volume using the volume modify command, or use the following procedure to modify a volume using the MapR Control System:

  1. In the Navigation pane, expand the MapR-FS group and click the Volumes view.
  2. Display the Volume Properties dialog by clicking the volume name, or by selecting the checkbox beside the volume name then clicking the Properties button.
  3. Make changes to the fields.
  4. After examining the volume properties, click Modify Volume to save changes to the volume.
