Moving VDIs in live
We just added a useful feature in the
next-release brach: the possibility to move a VDI (disk) from a storage repository to another when the VM is running.
Here is how it works (remember the VM is currently running):
First, click on the Edit icon in the Disk panel:
As you can see, the current disk (named "Docker") is currently on "Local Storage" SR. We want to move it on another one.
We selected "ZFS" (our iSCSI storage running ZFS)...
And then validate the choice:
The operation takes times (depending of the disk size).
You can see the operation running in the main view: the VM dot having its VDI moving is in orange (with a tooltip), as you can see in this screenshot:
