The default image server is [https://images.joyent.com|https://images.joyent.com"/]. You can edit this list of sources using the "imgadm sources \-a <URL>" command, as documented in [imgadm(1m)|https://smartos.org/man/1m/imgadm]. Using the command _imgadm update_, you'll cause the local cache (*/var/db/imgadm/imgcache.json)* to be updated with the available images on the servers found in your sources.list. Once your local cache is updated, you can list all available images for use using _imgadm avail_:

{noformat}
* *urn*: A special string for describing the image in the form "cloud_name:creator_name:name:version"; for the "cloud_name" I suggest "smartos" if you are unsure, the creator name is usually your organization. The string should not contain spaces. (eg: "smartos:cuddletech:plan9:1.0.0")
* *type*: The type of image, either "zvol" for KVM or "zone-dataset" for Zones
* *os*: The OS of this image (this is required, but not validated or used, so use whatever you like)
* *os*: The OS of this image, required.&nbsp;As of this writing, must be one of smartos, linux, windows, bsd, illumos, other.
* *files*: An array of one or more file objects, containing the following properties for each:
** *path*: Local file path to the image data file (compressed zfs dump)
