How do I hot migrate a VM that is running off of ISO?
OnApp v 4.0+
To enable this, please use this API call:
curl -i -X PUT -H 'Accept: application/xml' -H 'Content-type:application/xml' -u 'OnApp User:Password' -d '<image_template_iso><allowed_hot_migrate>true</allowed_hot_migrate></image_template_iso>' --url http://Your.Onapp.com/template_isos/233.xml
Be sure to fill out onapp user, password and the correct URL. Note that 233 should be the ID of the ISO you used.
Allow hot migrate is not enabled for ISOs by default, because not all OSs will work with hot migration. You can turn on hot migration for these ISO 'templates' with an API call, though please note if it does not work, we will not be able to provide support for failed migrations of ISO-built VMs.
