You must specify a template when you create a volume or when you upload volumes packaged with your instance of App Volumes Manager to the selected datastore.
Note: AppStacks and Writable Volumes (2.x) can be created only by using App Volumes Agent 2.x and uploading the appropriate templates. Any information related to these volumes can be viewed only when the VOLUMES (2.X) tab is visible in the App Volumes Manager UI. If you have installed the latest version of App Volumes Manager and want to explore App Volumes 2.x, see Perform App Volumes 2.x Management Tasks.
Some of the considerations regarding templates are as follows:
- packages_templates and writables_templates are used while creating Application Packages and Writable Volumes for a user accessing a virtual machine installed with App Volumes 4.0 Agent.
- apps_templates and writables_templates (for 2.x template type) are used while creating AppStacks (2.x) and Writable Volumes for a user accessing a virtual machine installed with App Volumes 2.x Agent.
- Templates for Writable Volumes and Writable Volumes (2.x) are not compatible with each other.
- Template path for Writable Volumes and Writable Volumes (2.x) should be different.
