Subject RE: How to replace Primary Storage
Date Sun, 03 Jan 2016 12:18:46 GMT

I've enabled maintenance mode on Primary storage 1 and it stopped and moved all vm' on that
storage and moved to another PS automatically. But only vmdk files have been moved and "vmx,
log and other small files related to Vm's still exist on Primary storage 1. This is why I
can't unmount that from vmware. Any idea about forcing CS/VMware to recreate those config
files on new PS. I know if I stop the VM's and move storages to third PS will fix the problem

Thanks, as I found in older documents if I enable maintenance mode ol Primary Storage then
CS will try to move all storages to another Primary Storage with same tag. Has anyone tried

Hey Amir, this should be doable behind the scenes with vCenter. It will involve live storage
migration, then massaging the cloudstack db (volumes table pool_id and folder references).
If snapshots are involved, its a bit more involved.
