Use the CloudCenter installer binary (LINUX_WORKER_OS_VERSION) to create CloudCenter-enabled images on different clouds and regions.


When you modify a pre-built image (for example, when performing an OS update, installing a new tool, upgrading the Management Agent, and so forth), be aware that the pre-built image already has CloudCenter Tools installed.

When updating an image that already has CloudCenter Tools installed, you must delete this file (/usr/local/osmosix/etc/hostid) prior to taking the final snapshot.


Use this procedure to also install CloudCenter Tools on CentOS 7 and RHEL-7.
