    114 ORCA allows experimenters to create their own filesystem, kernel and ramdisk images to be used for a slice. As a starting point an experimenter can use a [wiki:neuca-images number of pre-existing NEuca-enabled images] or start with a [http://open.eucalyptus.com/wiki/EucalyptusUserImageCreatorGuide base Eucalyptus image] and add [wiki:NEuca-guest-configuration NEuca tools] to them to enable post boot configuration of network interfaces and the execution of post-boot scripts. An experimenter can then create an [wiki:image-proxy-with-orca ImageProxy] metafile describing the images, place them on a web server and use the image URL in the request.

    124124If no images are specified in the request, the sites to which the slivers are bound will select default images which are not guaranteed to be the same across all sites.

     126Note that there are two ways to customize a boot image. One is to create your own filesystem/kernel/ramdisk images, describe them in a metafile and use this metafile in the slice request. Another is to use the a [wiki:neuca-images stock image] and use a post-boot script described below to load additional software onto the image after the VM boots.
