create named based images

Here you can ask EVE-NG team to add new images to the list to play in lab.

Do not ask questions like "where I can get image x or Y" in that forum

create named based images

Post by kiteboy » Thu Oct 12, 2023 4:53 pm

So this my scenario

I have 2 for the same firewalls running in a lab in eve-ng
the manufacture has given me 2 licences which are worth at lot to me

I want to snapshot them both to create a NEW NAMED BASE IMAGE

for example I what to snapshot FW-A >>> BASE_FW_A_LICENSED and FW-B >>> BASE_FW_B_LICENSED

I see the process for committing a new base image but really I want the above. to able able to name it something specific

I don't recommend applying licenses to your images. Any time you create a new node its uuid will be different and if a license gets attached to uuid then it will become inactive.

2 values of lab device is in use for activated license:
1. node UUID
2. Node MAC address

commit such image is possible and create image folder with different name, but to get license working on such image you have to always set for node proper UIDD and MAC address
