SUSE Studio Onsite 1.2


Not all "Overlay files" will show up in the "Files" tab from an imported appliance.

Steps to duplicate:
  1. From the "build" tab of your appliance choose "export your appliance's Kiwi configuration".
  2. Take that configuration back into Suse Studio by choosing"create a new appliance" and from the "Choose a base template" screen choose "Import Use Kiwi or AutoYast configuration file"
  3. Look at the "Files" tab of the new appliance, not all of your overlay files are there.
