Managing latest EVE-OS images

This guide describes how to manage your enterprise’s latest EVE-OS images. You’ll find instructions for viewing which images are currently marked as latest; for marking a new image as latest and for removing a latest image.

Before you read ahead, you may want to be familiar with our EVE-OS images overview.

Prerequisites

You must have an EVE-OS image in your enterprise. If your enterprise doesn't have one, read our guide about adding an EVE-OS image to your ZEDEDA enterprise.

Considerations

Versions of EVE-OS marked as latest in your enterprise are not necessarily the latest versions of EVE-OS available. You need to track EVE releases and add new versions to your enterprise.

When you add an EVE-OS image to your enterprise, ZEDEDA Cloud does not automatically mark it as the latest image. You need to do that explicitly every time that you want a new latest image.

Your enterprise can have a latest image for each architecture compatible with EVE-OS. They don’t have to be the same numbered version of EVE-OS.

At this time, you can only mark an image as latest using the ZCLI.

Use the ZCLI

  1. Log in to the ZCLI.
  2. Mark your target EVE-OS image as latest.
    zcli image mark-latest IMAGE_NAME --image-arch=AMD64_OR_ARM64
    e.g.: zcli image mark-latest 11.0.5-lts-kvm-amd64 --image-arch=AMD64
  3. Verify that you have a new latest image by viewing your latest images.

Images marked as latest can’t be deleted. if you want to delete an EVE-OS image that's marked as latest, you must first mark a new image as latest.

If you try to delete an EVE-OS image that is currently marked as latest, the operation will fail and you’ll get the following error.

Image delete failed: Conflict
[Error DependencyConflict: Dependent Entry exists]
[Error DependencyConflict: Image 7.4.1-kvm-amd64 is marked as latest image for AMD64, can't be deleted]

To delete an EVE-OS image, see our guide to deleting EVE-OS images.
