Some remote images do not have aliases

When I list all the images in the remote image repository, there are many images that do not have aliases:

$ lxc image list images: -f csv -c lfd

What are these for? How do I launch them?

Hi @pajot, you can use those images as well, but I dont know why they dont have aliase names. You can launch like the other images with hash number.
lxc launch images:fe333b7f5d06 <container_name>

They don’t have aliases because they’re just cached entries. Aliases are something that we want the LXD users to be in control of.

If you want to mirror a particular image including its aliases, you can do lxc image copy images:XYZ local: --copy-aliases --refresh or something like that.
