I'm trying to add a new CPI f or Softlayer. Softlayer doesn't allow image
uploads to the cloud so the short story is that I'd like to use the
stemcell build process to build my new custom stemcell "into" the VM that
I'm running the build process in. So instead of creating a new
tarball/image file I'd like the build process to be able to install all of
its stuff into the OS of the running VM. Then I can capture this vm as a
new image in Softlayer and have it be my stemcell (one for micro and one
for full bosh). This is the plan anyway.
I've been playing with this for a few days and it seems to be possible but
I'd love to get the group's sense of whether this is reasonable. Basically
I've tried changing the work_dir to / and running the bundle exec rake
stemcell:micro[softlayer] command. There's more to it than that but
hopefully you get the idea of what I'm trying to do. Any pointers or
gotchas you guys can think of that would make this a fruitless approach?
