Viewing the OS image library

BMC Network Automation lists the binary images on the OS Images page. Through the OS Image Filter page, you can filter the list of OS images based on various attributes.

To view the list of OS images

  1. Navigate to Admin > Network Admin > OS Images.

  2. (Optional) Select the link in the File Name column to extract an OS image binary from the library. 
  3. (Optional) Perform one of the following tasks by using the menu options that are available on the OS Images page:

    ViewsDisplay items based on your favorite Filters. See About lists and views and Managing and sharing views.

    AddManually add a branch to the library. See Adding or editing a branch in the OS image library.
    Print ViewPrint the OS Image list
    RefreshRefresh the list with any recent updates
    HelpDisplay help for the OS Image Library

    In this list, you can distinguish how complete an image is by the contents of the Name and File Name columns, as follows:

    • If only a Name is populated, the image was discovered from a live device, but includes no binary data. This image cannot be deployed.

    • If only a File Name is populated, the image was manually added (using the Add option). This image has never been deployed, however, it can be deployed.

    • If both a Name and a File Name are populated, this image is known to have been running on a live device and includes the binary data. This image can be deployed.

  4. (Optional) Perform one of the following actions by clicking an icon in the Actions column on the OS Images page:
