A CentOS 7 server has Virtual Box installed, and the default location of the Virtual Machines is in
/root/VirtualBox VMs. Is there a way that I can put each virtual machine in a separate partition? I will eventually want to separately encrypt each partition, but for now, I just want each VM in its own partition, so that
vm1 is in
vm2 is in
/custompartition2, and so on. The partitions have already been created, but how can I set things up so that each virtual machine is located in its own separate partition?
In hopes of clarifying @MohammadMoeni’s suggestion, I am clarifying my request as follows:
I want to remove
/root/VirtualBox VMs/vm1, and instead locate it at
/custompartition1/vms/vm1. I also want to remove
/root/VirtualBox VMs/vm2 and instead locate it at
What specific steps do I take to set up VirtualBox so that it will run
/custompartition1/vms/vm1 (and so on for
vm2)? And how can this be set up in a way that will enable me to later encrypt the partition?
Note that the server has a minimal install of CentOS 7, so I am using
VBoxManage at the command line.
You can move your folder virtual machine to another folder andthe open it on virtualbox
In virtual machines hdd is many important you can make a virtual machine hdd and folder customize in another path (partition)
