|Image Tasks / Migrate an Image|
A common way to create a new image is to customize an existing instance. This topic describes how to create a new image by modifying an existing EBS-backed instance.
This example shows how to create a new EBS-backed Eucalyptus image based on an existing EBS-backed Eucalyptus instance.
This command will show the ID of the new machine image and exit immediately. In the background, Eucalyptus will begin the process of creating a new image based on the instance you supplied.
You can monitor the status of the image using the euca-describe-images command, supplying the ID of the image returned from the euca-create-image command. For example:euca-describe-images i-e12398ab
