Updating an existing pool

Update existing storage pools.

Before you begin

You must be logged into the OpenShift Container Platform web console as an administrator.


  1. Click Storage > Data Foundation.
  2. From the Storage systems tab, select the storage system.
  3. Go to the BlockPools tab and then click the Action Menu next to the pool you want to update.
  4. Click Edit Block Pool and modify the form.
    • Change the Data protection policy, either 2-way-Replication or 3-way-Replication.
    • Change the compression.

      Enabling compression can impact application performance and might prove ineffective when data to be written is already compressed or encrypted. Data written before enabling compression will not be compressed.

  5. Click Save.
