Examples

To create a Ubuntu stemcell

stemcell_builder build ubuntu --agent-src-path=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/bosh_agent/ --name=bosh-ubuntu-stemcell

To create a Centos stemcell

stemcell_builder build centos --agent-src-path=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/bosh_agent/ --name=bosh-centos-stemcell

To create a Redhat stemcell

stemcell_builder build redhat --agent-src-path=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/bosh_agent/ --name=bosh-rhel-stemcell --rhn-user=<RHN username> --rhn-password=<RHN password>

To create a Ubuntu MicroBOSH stemcell

stemcell_builder build ubuntu --micro --agent-src-path=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/bosh_agent/ --release-tar=~/bosh/release/dev_releases/micro-bosh-0.1-dev.tgz --release-manifest=~/bosh/release/micro/vsphere.yml --package-compiler=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/package_compiler/ --name=micro-bosh-stemcell

To create a Centos MicroBOSH stemcell

stemcell_builder build centos --micro --agent-src-path=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/bosh_agent/ --release-tar=~/bosh/release/dev_releases/micro-bosh-0.1-dev.tgz --release-manifest=~/bosh/release/micro/vsphere.yml --package-compiler=~/bosh/release/src/bosh/package_compiler/ --name=micro-bosh-stemcell

TODO

This tool supports only a small subset of operations. Currently, the tool is targeted to be able to create vsphere templates for ubuntu and centOS 6.x. The following is a list of things that need to be done before we can call it ready for primetime (in order of priority).

  • Add Micro cloudfoundry build support
  • Support AWS
  • Support Openstack
