Cloning a Replica Volume

After you have replicated a volume collection from your HPE Nimble Storage array to the HPE Cloud Volumes portal, you can create clones of the volumes in the collection, which you can then attach and connect to your cloud VM.

To create a clone of a replicated volume:

  1. From the HPE CV main menu, click Replica Volumes.
  2. Click the replica volume that you want to clone.
  3. Scroll to the Snapshots list, click a snapshot, and then click the Clone button. The Create Clone dialog appears.
  4. Specify the name, size, cloud provider and network settings, and then click Next.
  5. Review your settings and then click Confirm. The newly created cloned volume appears in the Cloud Volumes window.
