Volume pool and number

This might be a silly question. I have 12 existing volume pools including the default volume pools. Each volume pool has a number allocated to it.I create a new volume pool, APP_VMs. It is given the number 10 (since 10 was missing. I am assuming 10 was allocated to a volume pool which has since beed deleted). When I create a new policy and want to select the APP_VMs volume pool it is not available. Only 8 volumes pools are available in the drop down selection. These volumes pools are in alphabetical order and not according to volume pool number. The reason i am confused is why is APP_VMs not showing up as it should be the first alphabetically?

Also is there a way to change how many and in what order the volume pools show up in the drop down field on the policy page? Thanks in advance.

Seems the GUI may have its own cache that it is using instead of reading from the table in EMM.

Try to close and re-open the GUI.

Did you refresh all in the GUI?

 

If you can list the pool using CLI then its there and the GUI is not reflecting correctly.

Thanks. That worked. I did that a couple of times and it finally showed up. It might have been a delayed response. Is there a way to change the number allocated to the volume pools and what is the reason for the numbers if the number is not used as a priority number in the drop down in the policy volume pool?

There is no way that pool number can be specified when a pool is created. 
NBU/EMM makes that decision.

Even when adding a pool from cmd, you can only specify pool name:

vmpool -create -pn <pool_name> 
(See Commands Manual for full list of options.)
