Add Images

Let´s talk about how to add a new Image.

Switch to the Images area and click on Add Image.

targets

A new window opens.

add target

The next thing you need to do is to insert a Name and Description for the Image. Then choose from the drop down menu how the IMage should be configured. You can choose from an already created base Image or create a new one from scratch.

If a base Image hasn´t been created before this option is not available.

Currently it is not possible to use the latest version of Packer because of dependencies with the Windows Update Provisioner.

When you are done click on Save

You should now see your newly created Image.
