After you create a named disk in a VDC, you can attach it to any virtual machine that is deployed in the VDC.


You must have an organization administrator role or disk owner rights.


  1. On the Virtual Datacenters dashboard screen, click the card of the virtual data center you want to explore and under Storage, select Named Disks from the left panel.
  2. Click the radio button next to the name of the named disk that you want to attach to a virtual machine, and click Attach.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select a virtual machine to which to attach the named disk, and click Apply.


The named disk is attached to the virtual machine.

What to do next

You can attach more named disks to the VM, or detach them as needed.
