1.13 Drag and Drop

You can drag and drop one or more Oracle VM Servers (either from the table in the management pane, or from the navigation tree) to another server pool, or the Unassigned Servers folder in the navigation tree. Any virtual machines on an Oracle VM Server must be migrated or moved before moving an Oracle VM Server.

You can also drag and drop one or more virtual machines from the table in the management pane to a server pool, an Oracle VM Server or to the Unassigned Virtual Machines folder in the navigation tree. When you drag and drop multiple virtual machines to a server pool, the placement strategies for the virtual machines depend on the Oracle VM Server roles, and server pool policies such as Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) and Distributed Power Management (DPM). See What are Server Roles? in the Oracle VM Concepts Guide for information on Oracle VM Server roles, and What are Server Pool Policies? in the Oracle VM Concepts Guide for information on server pool policies. See Section 3.5.2.11, “Migrate or Move Virtual Machines” for more information on migrating virtual machines.

All drag and drop operations are performed serially, and not concurrently, so one job is submitted and performed at a time. For example, when migrating multiple virtual machines, one virtual machine is migrated, then the next, and so on.

Tip

When selecting items to drag and drop, you may find that the items are more easily movable when you select an area of blank space in the item that you wish to drag. Otherwise it is possible that your browser may determine that you are attempting to highlight the text or icon for the item.
