Editing CommCell Names


You can change the display name of a CommCell environment on the CommCells page. The CommCell name change is reflected in most default Metrics Reports. However, the change does not appear in the Growth Trends Report or the Chargeback Report. Also, the display name will not appear in custom reports that you create with the Report Builder or that you download from the Commvault Store. You can return the display name to the default CommCell Name by deleting the new name, and then saving.
