Hi,

So obviously the documentation for creating an OpenVZ Template exists but I'm told it's overkill. All I want to do is to create a "tar.gz" template of a few operating systems that are not released officially (Ubuntu 17.04, CentOS 7.0, Debian 9.1). Looking in on the official template "tar.gz" files, it appears to be all of the server files zipped?

How can I do this quickly and easily?


Cheers.

Hello frnds,

you have to download the template like ISO form the " https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/contribute?version=1 6.04.3&architecture=amd64"
after that you have to convert it in "tar.gz" format via command.

tar --to-stdout xf tareddata.tar | genisoimage -o image.iso tareddata
