(Doc ID 2161816.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Linux x86-64



Moving a VM from one repository to another can be somewhat tedious, especially if the VM has many vdisks or there are many vm's to move.

To completely move a VM, a clone-customizer must be created that specifies the target destination for each virtual disk.

The script provided with this article will assist with activities such as:

It creates the clone-customizer(s) and moves the entire vm (vm.cfg file and all virtual-disks) to the destination repository.

Source and target ocfs2-based repositories must be in the same pool. NFS-based repositories can be in different pools but under the same manager.

No warranty or support for the provided scripts is implied - they are provided "as is" for demonstration purposes and can be adapted as required.
