(See What is a Stemcell? for an introduction to stemcells.)
As described earlier, each deployment can reference one or more stemcells. For a deploy to succeed, necessary stemcells must be uploaded to the Director.
The stemcells section of bosh.io lists official stemcells.
bosh upload-stemcell command.
If you have a URL to a stemcell tarball (for example URL provided by bosh.io):
$ bosh -e vbox upload-stemcell https://bosh.io/d/stemcells/bosh-warden-boshlite-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent?v=3421.9 --sha1 1396d7877204e630b9e77ae680f492d26607461d
If you have a stemcell tarball on your local machine:
$ bosh upload-stemcell ~/Downloads/bosh-stemcell-3421.9-warden-boshlite-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent.tgz
Once the command succeeds you can view all uploaded stemcells in the Director:
$ bosh -e vbox stemcells Using environment '192.168.50.6' as client 'admin' Name Version OS CPI CID bosh-warden-boshlite-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent 3421.9* ubuntu-trusty - 6c9c002e-bb46-4838-4b73-ff1afaa0aa21 (*) Currently deployed 1 stemcells Succeeded
To use uploaded stemcell in your deployment, add stemcells:
stemcells: - alias: default os: ubuntu-trusty version: 3421.4
