Modify Move Groups


After assessing the contents of one or more move groups, you might decide that some applications or compute instances need to be added to, removed from, or moved between move groups to reduce risk or simplify moves.

About This Task

  • A compute instance can only belong to one move group. If you select a compute instance that is already associated with a move group and add that compute instance to another move group, the compute instance will automatically be removed from the original move group.


  1. Navigate to the Inventory page.

  2. Move applications or compute instances, or both, into the move group.

    You cannot move applications and compute instances together.

    • To move one item, click and hold on vp-icon-drag-drop.png next to any application or compute instance you want to add, drag the item, and drop it in the move group.

    • To move two or more items, select the checkbox next to each application or compute instance you want to move, click and hold on vp-icon-drag-drop.png next to any selected object, and then drag and drop the objects into the move group.

      When you grab the vp-icon-drag-drop.png, a tootip displays the name or number of items you are moving, so you can verify them.


    You can also right-click and select either "Copy to Move Group" or "Move to Move Group".

  3. To delete move groups, select the items to be deleted, right-click, and select Delete Selected Move Groups.

  4. Click Save.

    There is an option to Undo Changes.


    Clicking Undo Changes deletes all changes made since the last save.

  5. Calculate the move groups you modified.

  6. Assess the move group output and again modify move groups as needed until ready for migration.

  7. When finished modifying the move groups, click Save.

    Ensure you save after the calculations complete, to retain the calculations.
