Is there a way to clone/copy a vm without upgrading XOA?
I'd simply like to clone a linux vm, but when I try to copy in XOA web app, it says it requires an upgrade. I understand there are premium features that may have value fir enterprise users, but thus seems pretty basic...
Is there another way for a guy like me as a hobbyist to do this?
Agreed that this should work in XOA Free. Perhaps @olivierlambert will chime in on this. A couple of options that should work for you --
- Export and then Import the VM to create the "clone"
- Build XO from source to gain access to most of the "premium" features
You can also run the vm-clone command on the XCP-ng server.
xe vm-clone new-name-label="clone name" vm="original name"
I was thinking that I saw a post a few days back from @olivierlambert that said he "agreed" that cloning should be a default ability for XOA free version and he would look into enabling it. I'll have to go look for it (hopefully I didn't make it up!).
Indeed, it was asked recently, and following the conversation, I created an issue to unlock this: https://github.com/vatesfr/xen-orchestra/issues/4890
I think it was "locked" by mistake, so expect that fixed in next release
