15.2. Installing New OS Templates

On loading the OS Templates screen of the New Software tab, Virtuozzo Automator checks for new OS templates that can be installed on the physical server. A check is performed if at least one of the following conditions is met:

  • A check has never been performed yet.
  • It has been 24 hours or more since the last check.
  • Connection to the repository has been insecure.

The check results are displayed in two sections: the first provides the time of the last check and the second lists found templates, the number of which is provided in brackets after the section name.

To view information on an OS template or install additional compatible application templates, click the OS template name.

To install an OS template from the list without additional application templates, check its box and click the Install button on the toolbar.
