6.7.5. Moving Virtual Machines within a Data Center

A virtual machine can be moved to a different Storage Domain within the data center. The data center requires an additional active data domain in the data center.

To move a virtual machine to another storage domain:

  1. Click the Virtual Machines tab.
  2. If the virtual machine you want to migrate is not visible in the list, perform a search (see Section 1.2, “Search”).
  3. Select the virtual machine.
  4. Shut down the virtual machine.
  5. Click the Move button.
  6. The Move Virtual Machine dialog box displays. Select from the list of available Storage Domains. If there are no additional Storage domains, an error message displays.
  7. Click Close.
The virtual machine is moved to the different storage domain.
