You can change the reservation of a managed machine. This ability is useful when a machine moves to a new storage path that is not available in its current reservation. For a single machine deployment, you can also change the business group for the machine.

About this task

You can change the machine’s current compute resource. You can also move it to any reservation on that compute resource.

You can also move a machine in a single machine deployment to a different business group if the machine owner is a member of the target business group. You must be a business group manager of the original and the target business group to use this function.

The change business group action does not recognize reservation policies. If there is a reservation policy assigned to the machine, you cannot change its business group.
