Moving a VM to a different availability zone

    When creating a VM, you can choose the Yandex.Cloud availability zone where it will be located.

    You can't move a VM to a different availability zone, but you can create a copy of it in a different availability zone.

    To change the availability zone of a VM:

    1. Create a snapshot of each of the VM's disks, see Creating a disk snapshot.
    2. Create a VM in a different availability zone with the disks from the snapshots, see Creating a VM from a set of disk snapshots.
    3. Delete the original VM, see Deleting a VM.
