Manage storage groups by configuring the storage to make it attachable or non-attachable.

The list of storage locations and their status is displayed on the Managed Storage Locations page.

When you mark a storage as Not Attachable, the App Volumes Manager ignores the storage while mounting volumes.

For example, if you have set up two vCenter Server instances. Each instance can have a local storage and shared storage capability. You can mark the slower-performing storage as Not Attachable. A storage thus marked is ignored by the manager while mounting volumes and the storage can be used solely for replication of Packages and AppStacks.

Note: AppStacks and Writable Volumes (2. x) can be created only by using App Volumes Agent 2. x and uploading the appropriate templates. Any information related to these volumes can be viewed only when the VOLUMES (2.X) tab is visible in the App Volumes Manager UI. If you have installed the latest version of App Volumes Manager and want to explore App Volumes 2. x, see Perform App Volumes 2.x Management Tasks.
