Creating a Custom Template (Linux)

In order to create a template based on the Linux images, please use the following procedure.


The machine used to create the Template will then become unusable. We recommend deleting it afterward. Alternatively, you could take a Snapshot before the Template creation, and then revert back to that Snapshot once the Template is complete.

  1. Create your Linux machine to your desired specifications
  2. Use /usr/local/bin/ to prepare the machine for Template creation. You must add sudo before the command. i.e. sudo
  3. The output will look like this:

  1. Power down the machine with sudo shutdown now (or sudo halt if that doesn't work)
  2. Return to your Paperspace Console
  3. From the Machines tab, click on your machine's tile and scroll down to the Create Templates section.
  4. Click the green plus sign to create your Template

Your Template will now be available for you to create new machines from under the Templates tab in your Console.
