vSphere ESXi Image Builder workflows are examples for cmdlet usage. Workflows do not represent actual tasks, but illustrate how you might explore different ways of using a cmdlet. Administrators trying out the workflows benefit from some experience with
PowerCLI, Microsoft PowerShell, or both.
Examine Depot Contents You can examine software depots and VIBs with vSphere ESXi Image Builder cmdlets. You can use wildcards to examine depot contents. All wildcard expressions are supported.
Create Image Profiles by Cloning Workflow You can use vSphere ESXi Image Builder cmdlets to check which depots are available, to add a depot, to view image profile information, and to create a new image profile by cloning one of the available image profiles.
Create New Image Profiles Workflow In most situations, you create an image profile by cloning an existing profile. Some VMware customers or partners might need to create a new image profile. Pay careful attention to dependencies and acceptance levels if you create an image profile from scratch.
Edit Image Profiles Workflow You can create a custom image by cloning and editing an image profile by using PowerCLI. You can add or remove one or more VIBs in the existing profile. If adding or removing VIBs prevents the image profile from working correctly, an error occurs.
