Characters to avoid in Legato NetWorker configuration names

When you upgrade from earlier versions of Legato NetWorker to version 5.1, the configuration names of label templates, directives, groups, policies, and schedules that include the following special characters are no longer supported.


This change was made because volume labels, directives, groups, policies, and schedules are often passed as command line options to various Legato NetWorker programs.

During the installation of Legato NetWorker, these characters in your current configuration are replaced with an underscore (_) in the resources where they were originally created.

However, in the clients resource where these configurations are applied, Legato NetWorker automatically replaces the selected configuration with the pre-existing Default configuration.

To resolve this issue, you need to reselect the configurations whose names have changed and reapply them to the individual clients.
