Manage diagnostic images installed on the system. Up to six images can be installed on the system. If your system already has six images installed and you add another image, the oldest unlocked image will be replaced with the new image, unless you have designated a particular image to be replaced.


Cancel the download process of an image that is currently downloading
Delete an image from the system. Use the

Lock a diagnostic image to protect it from accidental deletion.
Designate which image will be replaced next (if the system already has six installed images and you load another image). If you do not specify an image to be replaced, the oldest unlocked image on the system will be replaced.
Unlock a diagnostic image that you no longer want to protect from deletion. You have to unlock a locked image before you can remove it.
Unset image to be replaced next. When a replacement image is not designated, the oldest image will be replaced when you load a seventh image.
Show a list of installed diagnostic images along with their image numbers, software versions, release IDs, whether the image is locked or unlocked, whether it has ever been booted, creation date/time, and boot date/time. The summary at the bottom of the list indicates which image number is the current running system, the default system to run the next time the appliance is restarted, and the image number that will be replaced next.
