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.
- Log in to PMO UI.
- Select Volumes and Snapshots in the left menu panel.
- Select the volume from the list of available volumes.
- Select the ‘Upload as Image’ action.
- 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.
- Click Upload Volume.
Once uploaded, the image will be visible under the Images > Imported Images tab.
