Creating a Full-ECS Image Using a CSBS Backup

Scenarios

You can use a CSBS backup to create a full-ECS image, which can be used to create ECSs.

NOTE:
  • For how to create a CSBS backup, see the Cloud Server Backup User Guide.
  • For how to create ECSs using a full-ECS image, see Creating ECSs Using an Image.
  • When creating a full-ECS image using a CSBS backup, you need to apply for the access permission of the CSBS backup.
  • After a full-ECS image is deleted, the associated CSBS backup will not be deleted. To delete the associated backup, go to the CSBS console.

Constraints

  • Before creating a full-ECS image, you must optimize the CSBS backup as prompted. Otherwise, the full-ECS image may fail to create ECSs.
  • A CSBS backup used to create a full-ECS image cannot have a shared EVS disk.
  • A CSBS backup used to create a full-ECS image must be available. A CSBS backup can be used to create one full-ECS image.
  • A full-ECS image cannot be shared with other tenants.
  • A full-ECS image cannot be published as a Marketplace image.
  • A full-ECS image cannot be exported or replicated.
