You can register an external image file as a private image on the cloud platform.
You have uploaded the image file to the OBS bucket.
If the image file is ready, select Image File Preparation.
For image files in the following scenarios, this function does not take effect after Enable automatic configuration is selected:
ECS system disk image: This type of images can be used to create ECSs.
BMS system disk image: This type of images can be used to create BMSs and cannot be encrypted.
To ensure that images can be created and used, select the OS consistent with that of the image file. If no OS is selected, the system will automatically identify the OS of the image file.
If the uploaded VHD image is generated using qemu-img or similar tools, check the system disk size based on 4.1.23 Why Does the Error Message Displayed on Task Center Indicates That the System Disk Size of the External Image File Exceeds the Maximum System Disk Size When a VHD Image File Failed to Be Uploaded?
If the image needs to be encrypted, select KMS encryption and select the key to be used from the list of keys. After you select KMS encryption, the system will create a default master private key ims/default for you. You can also select a private key from the private key list. For how to encrypt an image, see Creating Encrypted Images.
The time required for image registration is determined by the image file size. You may need to wait a long period of time for the image file to be successfully registered as a private image that is not initialized.
