Do not use the VM Host to create golden images to be used for guest OS installations using Ignite-UX.

An Integrity system can be used to create a golden image suitable for OS installation on a virtual machine, provided it has all of the VM Host software completely removed. To do so, remove both the Integrity VM bundle (T2767BC) and the VMKernelSW bundle:

# swremove -x autoreboot=true T2767BC VMKernelSW

Before using the system to create a golden image, verify that neither of these bundles are installed. That is, errors should result when querying the system with swlist:

# swlist T2767BC VMKernelSW # Initializing... # Contacting target "foo"... ERROR: Software "T2767BC" was not found on host "foo:/". ERROR: Software "VMKernelSW" was not found on host "foo:/".

For more information about using Ignite-UX golden images, see the Ignite-UX Administration Guide.
