Migrating a Resource

Migrating a resource means that you dissociate a resource from a vault and then associate it to another vault. All backups of the resource will be migrated to the destination vault.


  • Resources can be migrated only when the source and destination vaults are in the Available or Locked state.
  • The source and destination vaults for resource migration must be of the same specifications.
  • The remaining capacity of the destination vault must be greater than the size of resource backups to be migrated.
  • Cross-account resource migration is currently not supported.
  • The source and destination vaults must be in the same region.
