Editing a Memory Rule is very similar to creating one. If you have permission to edit the rule, you can edit any field, including the rule name.


Get familiar with the custom rule fields that you are about to edit. For details, see Table: Memory Rule Fields .

Note: If you are using Unified Management, and you edit a unified rule shared with other servers, a wizard shows the progress as the edited rule is saved on each server.

For more details, see Unified Management of Rules.
