Description William Henry 2011-08-17 19:28:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Be default the imagefactory.conf includes the following line:

  "ec2_build_style": "snapshot",

Customers may have lots of company standard images and kickstart definitions that they use internally and want to use these same images in the cloud. In order for customers to use their own images/repos for building images for EC2 they need to edit the imagefactory.conf file and change the above line to:

  "ec2_build_style": "upload",

However no ALL images build using this instance of imagefactory will use upload. 

It would be nice to choose at build time what build sytle to use rather than having to edit the default style in the imagefactory.conf.

Yes, definitely.  This is a problem that we'll need to fix shortly, as it is going to start causing pain.  Luckily it shouldn't be too hard to do.

We may want to get some additional input from Hugh Brock & Chris Morgan on this.

uploading customer created RHEL images to ec2 *may* lead to some heart burn for customers. Chris may want to comment for ec2.

Comment 8 Chris Morgan 2011-08-19 17:17:29 UTC
There is no reconciliation, then.  We only support images that are in the providers catalog and certified.  Most clouds do not have import capability anyway due to the licensing concerns.

uploading RHEL is not supported..
