To freeze software repositories to ensure that a Server uses the appropriate versions of select software repositories.
Table of Contents
You can edit Software Repositories at the following levels:
See Inheritance of Software Repositories for more information about the hierarchy and inheritance rules that apply.
Note: Your Software Repository window may or may not include the warning message in the example shown above. This may seem ominous at first glance, but it is not. Essentially it is making sure you are aware of dates on the repository, mostly because the mirrors with RightScale images on them and the ability to freeze them in time is a relatively new feature, so you can only go back in time so far. Images prior to version 4.1 are not supported. Trying to select unsupported images will default to repositories that were frozen on December 10, 2008.
Depending on your selection,the current repository settings will be listed under the "Using" column. If a setting is being inherited, the level where it's being inherited from will be listed in parenthesis.
When viewing a running "Current" Server, you can view a list of which repositories have been frozen under the Server's Info tab. You can see which repositories (if any) have been frozen.
Note: The list reflects the settings that apply to the "Current" Server. Since you can edit the frozen software repository settings on a running Server, this list may not reflect the settings that were actually used when the Server was launched.
