Migrate an instance to another project¶
In order to migrate an instance from one project to another please perform the following steps:
Create a snapshot of the instance in the source project. Be aware that this takes a long time to complete.
Create a new volume with the contents of the snapshot (instead of empty volume) in the source project.
Create a "Volume Transfer" in the source project.
Name the transfer something:
You will be given back a transfer ID and an authorization key. Please write those down somewhere.
- Accept the volume transfer in the destination project.
Provide the transfer ID and the authorization key.
- Start the instance again from the volume in the destination project. Under "Source" in the "Launch Instance"-dialog - pick "Volume" and then the transferred volume.
