To move content from one cloud to another you use the copy function. You can use the copy function to move templates to a vSphere Cloud.

vCloud Connector is open.

1

Click the Template tab in the central panel.

2

Click the gears icon at the end of the entry for the template you wish to move and click Copy from the menu that appears.

You cannot copy a template from a public catalog.

The Copy Template popup appears.

3

Select the target cloud to which to move the template from the drop down menu.

4

Enter a name for the template in the Template Name field.

Note

The following characters are not supported in the name of the template being moved: "%", "#", "<", ">", "&".

5

Type the target folder name for the instance in the Target Folder field.

Click Select to see your available choices

6

Enter the cluster/host for the instance in the Cluster/Host field.

Click Select to see your available choices

7

Enter the resource pool for the instance in the Resource Pool field.

Click Select to see your available choices

8

Select the datastore for the instance from the drop-down menu in the Datastore field.

9

Select the disk format for the instance in the drop-down menu in the Disk Format field.

10

Click Copy.

To monitor the progress of your copy, see the right Task panel.

Note

You can start multiple copies at the same time. The copies are executed in sequence. Do not copy the same item to the same destination multiple times quickly in a row: only the first copy in such a scenario succeeds.

The template is copied. You might need to reload the screen to see the template in the destination instance.
