How to Copy Library Resources Between Clouds of the Same Type


Updated: June 1, 2015

Resources can be copied between Windows Azure subscriptions.

To copy resources from one Windows Azure subscription to another

  1. Go to the Library page and navigate to the Windows Azure storage container from which the files should be copied.

  2. Select files to be copied and click Copy.

  3. Navigate to the destination Windows Azure storage container.

  4. Click Paste.

VMM virtual machine templates or service templates can be copied between two VMM servers. VMM Administrators can select any destination VMM cloud library. VMM self-service users can select their corresponding folders in private cloud libraries.

To copy a VMM template between two VMM servers

  1. Go to the Library page and navigate to the VMM template node from which a virtual machine template or service template should be copied.

  2. Select the template you want to copy and click Copy.

  3. Navigate to the destination VMM cloud library share.

  4. Click Paste.

  5. In the Copy Template dialog box, for each dependent resource of the template, select either copy to destination or map to existing.

  6. Click OK.


    If files are copied to destination VMM cloud libraries, temporary storage is needed. By default, the temporary storage location is on the App Controller server under %programdata%\Microsoft\System Center\App Controller. It can be updated to a network share using the PowerShell cmdlet Set-SCACTemporaryStorage. The App Controller computer account must be added to the network share permission list.
