Have at least one image locally (run
podman image ls to confirm).
If you don’t have images locally, run simply
podman pull httpd.
# Save image as an archive podman save -o httpd.tar httpd # Check archive and image sizes du -sh httpd.tar # output: 143MB podman image ls | grep httpd # output: 149MB # The archive is obviously smaller than the image itself (6MB difference) # Copy the archive to a remote host rsync -azc httpd.tar USER@REMOTE_HOST_FQDN:/tmp/ # Load the image podman load -i /tmp/httpd.tar # Verify it exists on the system after loading podman image ls
