The app layer capture process starts with a pre-scan of the reference machine, installing the applications, and a post-scan.

  • The pre-scan creates an image of the reference machine before the required applications are installed. See Start an App Layer Capture‎.

  • The application installation installs the required applications on the reference machine that was selected in the pre-scan. See Install Applications on the Reference Machine.

  • The post-scan creates an image of the reference machine after the required applications are installed. The system then detects all changes following the installation and starts the capture process. See Post-Scan and Layer Creation.
