Summary

Currently emulated import only caters to the first disk or vmdk

Firstly this would be a product idea or enhancement request but I can't see it enabled for IaaS at the moment.

 

Traditionally a server even if its vmware will have multiple vmdks associated with it . as of now the only way to bring secondary disk is by robocopy or rsync of the contets. It would be useful if there was a block volume import facility similar to the image import facility that currently exists. I am wondering if I try to import a secondary volume as an image though the image will not be bootable can I attach the same as a secondary volume to an existing serer and use this as a workaround util the native facility is enabled.

Howdy, Stranger!
