Exporting a disk image of your virtual disk is fast and simple on Aruba Cloud:
- Go to the edit page of the individual Cloud Server: tab "Manage" and click on the "Manage" button in the list for the Cloud Server that you want to connect the virtual disk to.
- Switch off the Cloud Server by clicking on the "Shut Down" button.
- Scroll down the summary page of the Cloud Server up to the "Virtual Disk" section and click on "Export" relating to the disk that you want to export. A window will open with the name and location, within the FTP area, of the image that will be created. You will not be able to turn the Cloud Server back on until the image has been created; the time required to export it depends on the size of the disk.
After completing this process you will find the disk image you have just exported in the FTP space, in the indicated position.
It is not possible to export the disk of an archived Cloud Server, to do this you would need to restore it first.
