Creating an Image

After you have set up the manifest file and, optionally, customized the finalizer scripts, you are ready to create an image by running the distro_const command.

Note - You need to run the distro_const command as root.

Syntax: distro_const build [-R] [-r step] [-p step] [-l] manifest

See the distro_const(1M) man page for detailed information.

Creating an Image in One Step

To run a complete build of an image without pausing, use the basic distro_const command without options as follows:

$ pfexec distro_const build manifest

Replace manifest with the name of the manifest file to be used. The build subcommand is required.
