Migrate an instance to another project

In order to migrate an instance from one project to another please perform the following steps:

  1. Create a snapshot of the instance in the source project. Be aware that this takes a long time to complete. image

  2. Create a new volume with the contents of the snapshot (instead of empty volume) in the source project. image

  3. Create a "Volume Transfer" in the source project. image

Name the transfer something: image

You will be given back a transfer ID and an authorization key. Please write those down somewhere. image

  1. Accept the volume transfer in the destination project. image

Provide the transfer ID and the authorization key. image

  1. 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. image
