(See What is a Stemcell? for an introduction to stemcells.)
As described earlier, each deployment can reference one or more stemcells. For a deploy to succeed, necessary stemcells must be uploaded to the Director.
The stemcells section of bosh.io lists official stemcells.
Uploading to the Director¶
bosh upload-stemcell command.
If you have a URL to a stemcell tarball (for example URL provided by bosh.io):
bosh -e vbox upload-stemcell https://bosh.io/d/stemcells/bosh-warden-boshlite-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent?v=3468.17 --sha1 1dad6d85d6e132810439daba7ca05694cec208ab
If you have already downloaded a stemcell on your local machine:
bosh upload-stemcell ~/Downloads/bosh-stemcell-3468.17-warden-boshlite-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent.tgz
Once the command succeeds you can view all uploaded stemcells in the Director:
bosh -e vbox stemcells
Should result in:
Using environment '192.168.50.6' as client 'admin' Name Version OS CPI CID bosh-warden-boshlite-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent 3468.17* ubuntu-trusty - 6c9c002e-bb46-4838-4b73-ff1afaa0aa21 (*) Currently deployed 1 stemcells Succeeded
