    176176=== Client disk images ===

    178 ORCA allows experimenters to create their own filesystem, kernel and ramdisk images to be used for a slice. A number of standard images [http://geni.renci.org:12080/registry/images.jsp are available already]. The images listed with this service are automatically visible in Flukes under 'images' button.

    185185 
    186 Images can be specified for each node or nodegroup independently. New images must first be defined using the 'Images|New' dialog and then can be referenced from pull down menus in reservation and node properties. Users are required to specify an image for each node or nodegroup.

    188188If the user has an image that should always be part of the Flukes environment, there are two approaches - request that the image is listed with [http://geni.renci.org:12080/registry/images.jsp the image service] (this way the image becomes visible to all Flukes users) or privately define the image in .flukes.properties file.

    196196 
    197 More images can be added by specifying image2.name, image2.url, image2.hash and so on. The images will be visible in the "Client Images' window and can be selected for individual nodes or the entire reservation. Note that they will not be visible in the preferences window.

    199 If an experimenter loads a request file that references an image with the same name as one of the images defined in flukes properties, but with a different hash or url, this image will be added to the list of images under 'Client Images' with its usual name and a string '-req' appended to it.
