To publish a Layered Image, you need one or more Image Templates.
Ensure that the Image Template you select have the correct OS Layer and any App Layers you want in the Layered Image.
You can use an image template to publish a layered image, as follows:
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 shown above to navigate to the location where the layered image has been published.
When publishing a Layered Image to a file share, there is one Virtual Machine Disk (VMDK) file option, which creates two files: layer.vmdk and layer-flat.vmdk. Upload both files.
