The tenant admin can predeploy a shadow to pools that do not already have a copy of that lab, thus reducing the wait time for the end user.


  • You must be logged in as a tenant administrator.

  • Enable Advanced Options on the Admin UI control panel.


  1. From the Admin UI control panel, select Cloud Management > Cloud Shadow to open the Cloud Shadow page.
  2. Select the Cloud orgs you want to display. The system displays where shadow copies reside in the various storage pools.
  3. Optionally, you can click Refresh Shadow Information to run a shadow update for the clouds you selected.
