How to Upload a MED-V Image to the Server

After a MED-V image has been tested, it can be packed and then uploaded to the server. For information on configuring an image Web distribution server, see How to Configure the Image Web Distribution Server.

Once a MED-V image is packed and uploaded to the server, it can be distributed to users by using an enterprise software distribution center, or it can be downloaded by users using a deployment package. For information on deployment using an enterprise software distribution center, see Deploying a MED-V Workspace Using an Enterprise Software Distribution System. For information on deployment using a package, see Deploying a MED-V Workspace Using a Deployment Package.

Before uploading an image, verify that a Web proxy is not defined in your browser settings and that Windows Update is not currently running.
