<title>Add a Root Filesystem</title>
<p>When you add a root filesystem to Walrus, you bundle the root filesystem file, upload the file to a bucket
in Walrus that you name, and then register the root filesystem with Eucalyptus. The bundle
operation can include a registered ramdisk (ERI ID) and a registered kernel (EKI ID). The
resulting image will associate the three images.</p>
<p>You can also bundle the root file system independently and associate the ramdisk and
kernel with the resulting EMI at run time. For more information, see <xref
<p>To add a root filesystem to Walrus:</p>
<cmd>Use the following three commands:</cmd>
<codeblock>euca-bundle-image -i &lt;root_filesystem_file>
euca-upload-bundle -b &lt;root_filesystem_file_bucket> -m /tmp/&lt;root_filesystem_file>.manifest.xml
euca-register &lt;root_filesystem_file_bucket>/&lt;root_filesystem_file>.manifest.xml</codeblock>
<p>For example:</p>
<codeblock>euca-bundle-image -i euca-fedora-10-x86_64/fedora.10.x86-64.img --ramdisk eri-722B3CBA --kernel eki-5B3D3859
Generating manifest /tmp/fedora.10.x86-64.img.manifest.xml
euca-upload-bundle -b example_rf_bucket -m /tmp/fedora.10.x86-64.img.manifest.xml
Generating manifest /tmp/fedora.10.x86-64.img.manifest.xml
euca-register example_rf_bucket/fedora.10.x86-64.img.manifest.xml
IMAGE emi-XXXXXXXX</codeblock>
<p>Where the returned value <codeph>emi-XXXXXXXX</codeph> is the unique ID of the registered
machine image.</p>
