7.5.1. Migrating Templates to the Export Domain
Export templates into the export domain to move them to another data domain, either in the same Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment, or another one. This procedure requires access to the Administration Portal.
Procedure 7.7. Exporting Individual Templates to the Export Domain
Click the Templates tab and select a template.
Select the Force Override check box to replace any earlier version of the template on the export domain.
Click to begin exporting the template; this may take up to an hour, depending on the virtual machine disk image size and your storage hardware.
Repeat these steps until the export domain contains all the templates to migrate before you start the import process.
Click the Storage tab, select the export domain, and click the Template Import tab in the details pane to view all exported templates in the export domain.
7.5.2. Copying a Template's Virtual Hard Disk
If you are moving a virtual machine that was created from a template with the thin provisioning storage allocation option selected, the template's disks must be copied to the same storage domain as that of the virtual machine disk. This procedure requires access to the Administration Portal.
Procedure 7.8. Copying a Virtual Hard Disk
Click the Disks tab and select the template disk(s) to copy.
Select the Target data domain from the drop-down list(s).
A copy of the template's virtual hard disk has been created, either on the same, or a different, storage domain. If you were copying a template disk in preparation for moving a virtual hard disk, you can now move the virtual hard disk.
