Configuring images for use with the blueprint designer

You must configure images to work with the blueprint designer.

Requirements for all cloud systems

To use images with the blueprint designer, you must do the following with each image:
  • Ensure that Linux™ images have the tar and curl programs installed.
  • Ensure that Windows™ Server 2008 images have version 2.0 or higher of the PowerShell program installed.
  • To apply Chef roles to images, configure the images as described in Creating Chef-compatible images.
Configure the images for the target cloud:
Note: Configuration for some cloud and image type combinations must be completed in the blueprint. See Modeling environments for clouds through OpenStack Heat.
