Working with virtual machines

If you are assigned the admin role to a project in IBM® Cloud Infrastructure Center, in addition to start, stop, restart and delete a virtual machine, you can also resize, capture a virtual machine, or attach/detach a volume to it. Other user roles may not be allowed to do these operations.

If you are on a KVM hypervisor, you are also allowed to do a live migration, cold migration or a suspend/pause/resume operation to a KVM virtual machine.

Note: You cannot suspend a KVM Secure Execution virtual machine as it is not supported.
