Migrating an ECS


ECSs can be migrated:

  • Between Dedicated Hosts (DeHs)

  • From a DeH to a public resource pool

  • From a public resource pool to a DeH

This section describes how to migrate ECSs from a public resource pool to a DeH.


For the other two scenarios (migrating ECSs from a DeH to another DeH or to a public resource pool), see "Migrating ECSs" in the Dedicated Host User Guide.


  • Only stopped ECSs can be migrated.

  • To ensure that the migration is successful, there must be an available DeH.

  • CBR and CSBS backups are not affected by migrations.

  • ECS IDs remain unchanged after a migration.
