Hi guys, can someone help me with this? In my system I have created the Win10 PC virtual machine in VMM, which exists in Storage 1 (my main SHR storage). Now I added another disk in my spare slot (SSD), which is functioning as Storage 2, I also added this storage in VMM (I can see it there as Storage 2), but I need to move my virtual WIn10 machine here.
How can I do this?
Thanks everybody for help!

With DSM 6.2 and vmm 2.x it should be possible with vmm pro options (migrate option).
Another way you could try is to edit the machine and change its storage but that is known to reset to the initial storage location.

Also you could try and export it and then import it again targeting the next volume.

Finally you could hack it using the process listed here:

Well, I will try the export/import method first and will see.
As my NAS is used just in my home environment, I don't plan to buy the Pro license. So now it is simply a Basic license.
In License section, it says I can try a 30-days trial version of Pro version to try the migration method, but I am not sure what will happen after the trial will end...
