 Support for ISO images

You can load ISO images into the Image Service. You can subsequently boot an ISO image using Compute.


Procedure 6.1. To load an ISO image to an Image Service data store

  1. Obtain the ISO image. For example, ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso.

  2. In the Image Service, run the following command:

    $ glance image-create --name ubuntu.iso \
       --is-public=True --container-format=bare \
       --disk-format=iso < ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso

    In this command, ubuntu.iso is the name for the ISO image after it is loaded to the Image Service, and ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso is the name of the source ISO image.

  3. Optionally, confirm the upload in Compute.

    Run this command:

    $ nova image-list

Procedure 6.2. To boot an instance from an ISO image

  • Run this command:

    $ nova boot --image ubuntu.iso \
      --flavor 1 instance_name

    In this command, ubuntu.iso is the ISO image, and instance_name is the name of the new instance.
