Changing Allocation Pool Model

Jump to solution

I have create an Organization with one of the Allocation Models (Allocation Pool, Pay as you go, Reservation Pool)

Now I want to change the model.

cli only has the option passed in new-orgvdc and not in set for update.

Thinking the sql statements are different depending on which you create.

Org_prov_vdc holds each Org with col (Allocation Model)

-- Allocation Pool - Model id = 2

-- Pay As you go - Model id = 1

-- Reservation Pool - Model id = 3

Anyone know the full list of sql statements for each Model type?

Looking to use this as a way to change between Allocation Models.

We don't support changing the allocation model of an existing vDC. I would advise not hacking the DB (if that was what you were trying to do).

As other said the best way to do this would be to create a new vDC, migrate vApps there and decomission the old vDC.

Hi Badams,

Manually editing the vCloud DB doesn't fulfil your requirement, based on the allocation pool there are many dependencies in the vCloud Database and Resource pools.

I would suggest to perform the following actions:.

1. Create a new Pool with your desired Allocation model

2. Right Click vApps and click Move to , select the newly created pool

3. Then Delete the old one.

Hope this helps.
