You can test a container to make sure that the appliance runs correctly. Testing a container may include testing container services, for example. Once you are satisfied that the container runs correctly, you can then move the appliance to the destination machine.
You can test an appliance on the source machine (the computer upon which the application that is to be virtualized is installed) or on the destination machine.
Step 2: Move the Container
You must compress a container (.cap) to move it from the source machine to the destination machine. Then, you must uncompress the .cap file on the destination machine to begin using the container. One of the reasons for compressing the container is to preserve the short file names of the files in the container as they exist on the source machine.
