Howto Move Virtual Machines Across Servers when Drag and Drop in the VM Manager GUI doesn't reliably work (Doc ID 2096944.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 18, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

 On Oracle VM, when using the Oracle VM Manager Graphical User Interface, the usual way to move a VM across servers is to drag and drop it in the left panel.

However, in some cases, such as when using the GUI over a VNC connection or using some Web Browsers and/or Operating system, drag and drop may not work reliably. This note outlines how to move VMs across servers when the drag and drop method doesn't work properly.
