Hello I’ve been using SSH datastores for a years and I’ve found the easiest way. I just make replace old image file to new with fresh minor release.
Now I want to use CEPH datastores, so my way won’t work. At the same time I want to have fresh OS images (e.g. Ubuntu 18.04.1->2->3 ) for my customers, but I don’t want to have a lot of garbage in my Image Datastore due to I can’t remove old Image while it has child images.
