Converting Storage Policies to Server Backup Plans

You can convert all storage policies in your CommCell environment that are created in the CommCell Console to server backup plans that you can access and manage from the Command Center. From server backup plans that are created, you can create derived plans with different backup frequencies.

After conversion, the storage policies still appear in the CommCell Console and are used by the newly created plans as backup destination. Also, for any backup requirement later, we recommend you not to create new storage policies in the CommCell Console and create plans in the Command Center instead.

Important: The software converts all eligible storage policies to plans. You cannot convert selected storage policies to plans.


  1. Convert storage policies to server backup plans.
  2. (Optional) Create derived server backup plans with different backup frequencies.
