Current documentation on Image Deploy can be found at:

The image-deploy/image-type param specifies which type of supported image to deploy. When you set this Param on a machine, it is validated against an Enum type list of the supported image types - so you can not set this value to an unsupported image type.

According to the Param type definition, the currently supported types are:

  • tgz - Tar gzip compress filesystem
  • dd-tgz - tar file containing a single gzip compressed disk image
  • dd-txz - tar file containing a single XV compressed disk image`
  • dd-tbz - tar file containing a single BZ compressed disk image`
  • dd-tar - tar file containing a single uncompressed disk image`
  • dd-bz2 - tar file containing a single BZ2 compressed disk image`
  • dd-gz - raw disk image that is gzip compressed
  • dd-xz - raw disk image that is XZ compressed`
  • dd-raw - raw disk image that is uncompressed

For the most up to date list, see the Param definition link in See Also, below or the Param type definition in your DRP Endpoint.
