7.9. VBoxManage movevm

This command moves a virtual machine to a new location on the host.

Associated files of the virtual machine, such as settings files and disk image files, are moved to the new location. The Oracle VM VirtualBox configuration is updated automatically.

The movevm subcommand requires the name of the virtual machine which should be moved.

Also required is the type of move operation, specified by --type basic. Other types of move operation may be supported in future releases.

The --folder setting configures the new location on the host file system. Enter a relative pathname or a full pathname.
