Importing and Managing Stemcells
Page last updated:
This topic explains how to use the Stemcell Library to import and stage stemcells to products.
For more conceptual information about floating stemcells and stemcell upgrades, see Floating Stemcells.
WARNING: Some product releases require Xenial stemcells, as listed in Tiles Using Xenial Stemcells in Pivotal Platform. If you are importing and using Xenial stemcells for the first time, see Updates for Xenial Stemcell Support.
Download the appropriate
.tgz stemcell file from Pivotal Network, then click Import Stemcell to permanently import a stemcell into Ops Manager.
To stage your stemcell to compatible products, enable the products in the Import Stemcell dialog. Click Apply Stemcell to Products to save your selections. Click Dismiss to dismiss the Import Stemcell dialog.
If you have uploaded multiple versions of a stemcell, you can use the dropdown in the Staged column to choose which version to use.
You can choose a different version until you deploy. After deployment, older stemcell versions are no longer available.
If the stemcell displays with a green checkmark and the words Latest stemcell below the Staged dropdown, the stemcell is the latest available version on your host. An outdated stemcell displays Stemcell out-of-date.
