About OS Build Plans

An OS Build Plan specifies an execution sequence for the Plan Scripts to modify or retain server-specific content of an OS volume. Based on the type of Plan Scripts, an OS Build Plan can either deploy compute modules or capture images from compute modules.

For deployment, OS Build Plans modify the contents of the OS volume to personalize the golden image.

For capture, OS Build Plans generalize and capture an image.

OS Build Plans also contain custom attributes that allow you to specify any configuration information.

OS Build Plans are used by Deployment Plans to perform deployment. You cannot delete an OS Build Plan that is referenced by a Deployment Plan.
