How to Revert a Stemcell in Operations Manager


  • Operations Manager (Ops Manager) 1.x and 2.x
  • Stemcell


In some cases, you may want to revert to a previous version of a stemcell. Perhaps you accidentally uploaded a newer version or you are having a problem with the newer version.


Ops Manager always uses the latest stemcell uploaded. If you accidentally upload a stemcell that is newer than the one you intend to use, you cannot roll back through the Ops Manager UI.


Ops Manager stores uploaded stemcells under `/var/tempest/stemcells`.

To resolve this issue, you need to SSH to the Ops Manager VM and manually delete the stemcell.

You will then be able to upload a new and valid stemcell and the Ops Manager will use that file instead.
