A Layered Image is a virtual machine that App Layering composited from the layers and settings specified in an image template. You can publish one or more layered images to the appliance's Network File Share, copy the image(s) to your target environment, and use them to provision Session Hosts in your environment. This is especially useful if App Layering does not yet include Connectors for the platform where you're provisioning systems.


To publish a Layered Image, you need one or more Image Templates.

The Image Template you select should have the correct OS Layer and any App Layers you want in the Layered Image.
