Transfering files to or from a walt image

walt image cp allows to transfer files to or from a walt image. Its interface is very similar to scp, but simplified. Two forms are allowed:

$ walt image cp <image>:<path> <local-path>
$ walt image cp <local-path> <image>:<path>


  • You can transfer files or directories the same way (no specific option is needed for directories).

  • Second form modifies the image. Thus it will trigger a reboot of all nodes which have booted this image.

  • Command walt node cp modifies an image too when using keyword booted-image (see walt help show node-cp).
