To successfully copy resources to or from a vSphere cloud, you must configure and resize the data disk associated with the vCloud Connector node for that vSphere cloud.

You have vSphere administrator privileges.

Backing up the virtual appliance is recommended.

Note

Do not take a snapshot as hard disks of appliances that have snapshots cannot be resized. Use another backup method such as creating a clone.

In the Home page, select VMs and Templates.

In the hierarchy tree, select the vCloud Connector node virtual appliance.

4

Right-click and select Edit Settings.

The Virtual Machine Properties window opens to the Hardware tab.

Select Hard disk 2 in the Hardware column.

Modify the size, based on the size of the resources you are going to be transferring, and click OK.

Right-click the vCloud Connector node virtual appliance and select Open Console.
