Container Properties

Table of Contents

 

Container properties are attributes that you can list and configure, using the Administrative Console or the VirtaMove command line.

Listing Container Properties

List container properties for a container at the command prompt using the command https://virtamove.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/VDOC/pages/314147158/virtaprop?search_id=57933014-973a-4f90-a2c2-d95ace81900a and the path to the appliance.

For example:

1 c:\Program Files\VirtaMove>virtaprop c:\appliances\firefox_tether /p

VirtaMove supports paths that are relative to the container folder. That is, VirtaMove supports:

1 ".\scripts\StandardCOTF.xml"

or the absolute full path:

1 "C:\appliance\containerName\scripts\StandardCOTF.xml"

You can also specify only the file name of the COTF file if the file is in the scripts folder. For example:

1 "StandardCOTF.xml"
