Step 2. Mounting Cloud Disks

Last updated: 2021-06-29 10:50:35


    This document uses the cbs-test cloud disk to be mounted in the Beijing Zone 2 as an example to describe how to mount it to CVM via the console.


    • Cloud disks can only be mounted to any CVM in the same availability zone.
    • For more information on mounting cloud disks, see Mounting Cloud Disks.



    1. Log in to the CVM console and click Cloud Block Storage on the left sidebar.

    2. Select Beijing at the top of the page, locate the cbs-test cloud disk, and select More > Mount under the Operation column.

    3. In the pop-up window, select a CVM instance to which the cloud disk will be mounted, and click Next > Mount Now.


      You can check Release upon instance termination according to actual circumstances.

      Return to the cloud disk list page. The status of the cloud disk is Mounting, indicating that it is being mounted to the CVM. After the status changes to Mounted, the mounting is successful.

    Subsequent Operations

    After the cloud disk is mounted to a CVM, the cloud disk acts as a data disk, which is offline by default. You need to initialize the cloud disks by formatting, partitioning, and creating a file system. For more information, see Initializing Cloud Disks.
