Note: This feature is available with bosh-openstack-cpi v28+.
You can create your own OpenStack light stemcells to re-use stemcell images already uploaded to your OpenStack image store. Note: Future deployments will fail if the stemcell image referenced by a light stemcell is removed from your OpenStack image store.
- Retrieve the UUID of an already uploaded stemcell image e.g. with
openstack image list
- Retrieve the operating system and version of the stemcell from the image metadata to e.g. with
openstack image show <image UUID>
create_light_stemcellscript to create a light stemcell archive
$ ./create_light_stemcell --os ubuntu-trusty --version 3312 --image-id 1234-567-890
You can use the light stemcell archive like a regular stemcell archive in BOSH deployment manifests and with bosh-init.
