If you have Writable Volumes from another App Volumes deployment, you can import them to your current deployment.

Prerequisites

Provide access to the files of the Writable Volumes that you want to import in one of the following ways:

  • Verify that your vCenter Server instance has access to the datastore where the Writable Volumes that you want to import reside.

  • Copy the VMDK files of the Writable Volumes to a different folder on the datastore that you already use for Writable Volumes on your current App Volumes deployment.

Procedure

  1. From the App Volumes Manager console, select Volumes > Writables > Import Writables.
  2. Select the datastore and path from where you want to import and click Import.

What to do next

Click Rescan to update the list of Writable Volumes in the App Volumes Manager.
