Creating Additional Disks

To create an additional disk (volume) and attach it to a server, open the Volumes tab from the Server menu.

If you do not have any free disks, you can create a new one by clicking Create new in the prompt.

You can also create a new disk by clicking Volumes from the project menu and then Create volume.

In the new window, choose a location for the volume (1), enter a name (2), select a source (image, 3) and volume type (4), set its size (5), and click Create.

The new disk will appear at the top of the list. To manage your disk, click the arrow in the lower right-hand corner of the block.

You can change the size of the volume under the Size tab provided you have resources available.

Under the Control tab (1), you can choose what machine (2) or project (3) you’d like to attach the volume to. You will also find the Delete button (4) at the bottom. Please note that if your volume is attached to a server, it will have to be detached before it can be deleted.

 

Under the Snapshots tab, you will be find a list of server snapshots and the Create snapshot button.

 

After clicking Create snapshot, a snapshot will instantly be generated and appear at the top of the list.

You’ll find two icons to the right of each snapshot: Create disk from this snapshot and Delete.

Please note that disks can only be deleted after all of their snapshots have been deleted.

The drop down menu near the volume name offers the same functions as the tabs: rename volume, attach/detach from server, make a screenshot, transfer to other project, and delete volume. Please note that that the Delete volume option is inactive; this is because the volume is currently attached to a server.

If you have a free disk (or if you’ve just created one), you can attach it from the server block by selecting the volume name from the drop down list in the lower left-hand corner.

Afterwards click Attach volume.

After attaching your volume, it will appear in the list of server volumes. To detach it, click the Detach icon, located to the far right of the volume name.
