Upload Volume as Image

You can upload a volume as an image and spawn a VM instance from the image.

Upload of available volumes or volumes that are not attached to an instance does not affect the volume.

You must be a self-service user or an administrator to perform this operation.

To upload a volume as an image, follow the steps given below.

  1. Log in to PMO UI.
  2. Select Volumes and Snapshots in the left menu panel.
  3. Select the volume from the list of available volumes.
  4. Select the ‘Upload as Image’ action.
  5. Enter the Image Name. If the upload is for a volume attached to an active instance and you still want to upload the volume as an image, select the ‘Force’ check box.
  6. Click Upload Volume.

Once uploaded, the image will be visible under the Images > Imported Images tab.
