Extension CLI cmd omnimm -modify_pool with new options ( functionality of the GUI )

CURRENT BEHAVIOR ( due Service Request SD02072983 )

 For now, we can use this omnimm command to change Pool name and at the same time enable Free Pool and Move Free Media option

 omnimm -modify_pool PoolName NewPoolName [Policy AgeLimit MaxOverwrites]

       [ -[no_]alloc_uninit_first ]

       [ -[no_]free_pool [FreePoolName]] [ -[no_]move_free_media ]


BUT it is impossible to use omnimm command to DISABLE Free Pool and Move Free Media option.


For example, if a pool has Free Pool options enabled, and we tried the above command we will get this result:


C:\Users\Administrator>omnimm -modify_pool LTO-Ultrium_3 LTO-Ultrium_3 -no_free_pool

Can not modify pool as pool uses freepool.




Disable the options via GUI


 Customer wants to have a new command option like -disable_free_pool and -disable_move_free_media so that he can use command to disbale those options. It would be best to using script and commands to make changes on existing pools rather than doing the changes manually for each Pool via GUI.
