Create RightScale-Enabled Images with RightLink 5.8 and lower

Table of Contents


You can either use one of RightScale's published RightImages (v5 and above) that have RightLink pre-installed or you can manually create a RightScale-enabled image by installing RightLink and bundling the instance.


Important!  Custom images that are built with RightLink 5.9 and higher are fully supported by RightScale. If you choose to create your own custom images instead of using the ones included in ServerTemplates published by RightScale, please refer to the following documents for best practices and recommended procedures. See Create RightLink 5.9 Enabled Images or Create RightLink 6.0 Enabled Images.


However, if you do create custom images and would like to RightLink-enable them, use the following guides to learn how to convert a custom image into a RightScale-enabled AMI with RightLink installed. For Windows and RHEL on a private cloud, you must RightLink-enable your images due to licensing.

  • CentOS - Install RPM package  (RightLink Installer for CentOS)
  • Ubuntu - Install Debian package  (RightLink Installer for Ubuntu)
  • Windows - Windows installer executable  (RightLink Installer for Windows, Upgrade RightLink Version on Windows)
  • Debian GNU/Linux - Install Debian package (RightLink Installer for Debian)
  • Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) - Install RPM package  (RightLink Installer for Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) (alpha))
  • RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) - Install RPM package  (RightLink Installer for RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL))
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) - Install RPM package  (RightLink Installer for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES))

Note:  Applicable links provided in the See also section below.

Important!  Once you've created a RightScale-enabled Image with RightLink, you need to create a MultiCloud Image that points to that image and tag the MCI so that RightScale recognizes it as an image that has RightLink installled:


Once you've created an MCI, you can use it in your ServerTemplates.

To perform a compatibility test on the new private RightLink-enabled image that you create with one of the above tutorials, see Testing your Private RightLink-enabled Image.
