When adding new Virtual Platforms with similar or duplicate Resources, or Virtual Platforms for testing or development in a Community, it can be time consuming to configure each Virtual Platform with the same Resource settings.
By using the Copy Resources From command, you can reduce configuration time and virtually eliminate configuration errors. To complete this procedure, you must have already created a Virtual Platform, and have another existing Virtual Platform to copy Resources from. If you need to create a new Virtual Platform, see How to: Create a New Virtual Platform. This topic describes how to copy the Resources in one Virtual Platform to another.
Note: You cannot copy Resources to a Virtual Platform that already contains Resources. To use the Copy Resources From command, you must delete any existing Resources in the Virtual Platform that you want to copy to, save the Virtual Platform changes, and then click the Copy Resources From icon.
The following illustration is an example of the Select Virtual Platform dialog used to copy the Resources from the Virtual Platform named Default.
