Image States Reference¶
This page is a complete reference of all the Image states that will be useful for administrators doing troubleshooting and developers.
The simplified life-cycle is explained in the Virtual Machines Images guide. That simplified diagram uses a smaller number of state names. That section should be enough for end-users and every-day administration tasks.
List of States¶
OpenNebula’s images define its state using the
STATE variable. The state can be seen from the CLI (
oneimage show) and from Sunstone (Info panel for the Image).
