The disk templates page of the Katapult console shows a table of all previously created disk templates to which you can then use to deploy as a new disk.
A disk template represents a deployable disk containing the contents of a given snapshot. A disk template can installed in the following ways:
To create a disk template you must first have created a snapshot of the disk in question.
Your template will then be created. You will be taken to the Compute -> Disk templates screen once complete.
Katapult considers disk templates are versioned items and therefore, if you need to update a disk template you can do while retaining the old copy.
These steps will allow you to remove a specific version of a given disk template.
The given version of the template will be removed and can no longer be used when creating virtual machines, or installing operating systems onto system disks.
These steps will completely remove a disk template and all associated versions of it from the Katapult system, thus preventing any new machines from using it.
The template will be removed from your Katapult account.
Once you have one or more disk templates within your Katapult account you can deploy machines using them. A disk template will appear within the operating systems list of the new virtual machine wizard. For more information on this process please refer to the Creating a new virtual machine how-to guide.
If you wish to copy one of your disk templates onto a new disk within one of your virtual machines, then please refer to the install an OS how-to guide. You will see your disk template within the associated operating system list.
To install a disk template on an existing disk it is advised you format it first before then following the steps outlined in the install an OS how-to guide. You will see your disk template within the associated operating system list.
