Creating Chef-compatible images#
To use images with Chef and the blueprint designer, you must create the images with certain prerequisites.
Chef roles are supported only on Red Hat Enterprise Linux™ (RHEL) version 6 and version 7 images, and you cannot use Chef roles with all clouds.
For specific instructions for creating Chef-compatible images, see the following topics:
- To create individual Chef-compatible images for OpenStack and OpenStack-based clouds, see Configuring OpenStack images. To create multiple Chef-compatible images for OpenStack and OpenStack-based clouds, see Using a dedicated environment to create Chef-compatible images on OpenStack-based clouds.
- To create Chef-compatible images on SoftLayer® clouds, see Configuring private SoftLayer images.
