A Layered Image is a virtual machine composited from the layers and settings specified in an image template. You can publish one or more layered images to the appliance's hypervisor, provisioning service, or Network File Share.
The Network File Share gives you the option to manually copy layered images to a hypervisor for which there is not a connector, and use them to provision Session Hosts in your environment. This is useful if App Layering does not yet include Connectors for your hypervisor or provisioning service.
To publish a layered image, you need an image template with the correct OS, Platform, and App layers.
To use an image template to publish a layered image
In the Images module, select one or more image template that you want to publish.
On the Action menu, select Publish Layered Image.
On the Confirm and Complete page, select Publish Layered Images. For each Image Template, this starts a task called Publishing Layered Image. When each task completes, the task description provides the information you need to navigate to the image in your environment.
Use the information in the expanded Packaging Disk Task to navigate to the location where the layered image has been published.
After publishing the layered image, you can use the image to provision servers in your environment.
