You can migrate Cinder volumes that are unattached to instances to specified target datastores.


Verify that the volume does not have any snapshots attached. If so, you must detach them first.


  1. Using SSH, log in to the VMware Integrated OpenStack manager.
  2. Switch to root user.
    sudo su -
  3. Migrate the volume.
    viocli volume-migrate [-d NAME] {--volume-ids UUID1[,UUID2...] | --source-dc SRC-DC-NAME --source-ds SRC-DS-NAME] DEST-DC-NAME DEST-DS-NAME [--ignore-storage-policy]

    For more information about this command, see the viocli volume-migrate Command documentation.
