jeos-build - Create a stand-alone VMware image from a Shipwright vessel
jeos-build --image Vessel \ --vessel file://path/to/svn \ --skip-test \ --rcfile boot-rc.local
Sets the name of the VMware image to create. This option is required.
The base VMware image to clone from. If this option is not provided, it is assumed to be the
--image argument with
-base appended. If the base image does not exist, but the destination image does, the base image is first created by copying the destination image.
The URI to the shipwright source vessel. This should be a URI that can be understood by
svn co. This option is required.
Specifies the name of the local VMware datastore to use. This option is required if there is more than one local VMware datastore.
Specifies the set of flags to be passed on to
--skip-test to the
shipwright-build invocation, which skips all tests when building the finished vessel.
Creates a partial build. That is, the completed /opt/install is not copied out into a new clean copy of the base image, but is left in-place. This option is faster, and usually suffices for all but the last clean build.
Sets the rc.local file which is copied over to the image after a sucessful build. This file should set up first run properties of the appliance. It omitted, defaults to the default, no-op rc.local.
A valid username on the VMware image. Providing this, though not required, allows for realtime updates as to the status of the install.
The password for the above account.
Used if the build is already in progress on the VMware instance, but the corresponding invocation to
jeos-build was aborted. In all other cases, it is an error to run
jeos-build with the destination VMware instance not in the "powered off" state.
