Operating-system image profiles

When you import an OS image into the OS images repository, Lenovo XClarity Administrator creates one or more profiles for that image and stores the profiles in the OS images repository. Each predefined profile includes the OS image and installation options for that image.

OS image profile attributes

OS image profile attributes provide additional information about an OS-image profile. The following attributes can be shown.

Predefined OS image profiles

The following table lists the profiles that are predefined by XClarity Administrator when you import an operating-system image. This table also lists the packages that are included in each profile.

You can create a customized OS image profile for a base operating system. For more information, see Customizing OS-image profiles.
