How-To make an AHV VM into Prism Central Image


Badge
Using CALM, it seems the best way to deploy VMs is from a VM image that you add to the Image Configuration store.

However, when using Prism Central, it doesn't seem this is possible with ACLI to create an image from an AHV VM.

How are people taking an AHV VM in PC inventory and making an image out of it so that you can add it to the image configuration repository?

Thanks!

Thanks! That was what I ended up doing. There is a KB1533 on it that I eventually came across. Sounds like it might come back in the GUI at some point.

@echolaughmk you can try using ACLI through one of the CVM IP
  • acli vm.get (VM name) include_vmdisk_paths=true
  • nfs://(CVM IP)/vmdisk_nfs_path
  • go Prism Central UI
export -> images -> add images -> URL -> input the path from above output
