Before you use vCloud Connector to copy objects between your on-premise environment and vCloud Air, configure your environment with these settings.

Increase the node staging area of the on-premise node.

The node staging area is used during copy. The default size of the staging area is 40 GB. Increasing the staging area to the size of the object you are copying is recommended.

Add a catalog in your vCloud Air virtual data center, if you do not have any user catalogs.

For other settings that you can configure for copy, see Selecting Copy Options in Installing and Configuring vCloud Connector. For information about the Copy command, see Copying Virtual Machines, vApps, and Templates Between Clouds in Using vCloud Connector.
