Subject Re: Migrating a ROOT volume
Date Wed, 01 Jan 2014 06:50:36 GMT
Thanks Devdeep. 
So is that the only way to migrate a ROOT volume i.e. only as part of vm migrate ?
 In case of datadisk I can migrate it via Storage->Volume->Migrate, which I don't see
happening with ROOT volume. 
As detach operation is not shown for ROOT volume.
