mv command - Renames or moves a TMOS(tm) configuration object.
All tmsh modules.
Use the mv command within a tmsh module to move or rename the component that resides in that module. To move a component
that resides in another module, use the full path to the component.

WARNING Currently MV is an experimental feature. By using this feature, you may be subject to loss of statistics and
disruption in GTM service. If you plan to move or rename a Virtual Server, please contact your GTM administrator before
doing so. You may enable this feature by setting the appropriate db variable. This can be done by issuing the command:
modify /sys db mcpd.mvenabled value true
This will turn on the feature and allow moving and rename of select objects through TMSH only. Once you have finished using
the feature, we recommend disabling it once again. You may do this by issuing the following command:
modify /sys db mcpd.mvenabled value false
