Dear DO Community

I created snapshot of ubuntu 14.04 droplet, however my snapshot did not save the changes and updated in Sources.list ( I added some repos that are not saved in the snapshot)

did any one face the same issue and how did you overcome this issue?

The sources.list is updated when a droplet is deployed from a snapshot or an original image in our newer regions. To add additional repositories you should add them in the sources.list.d directory so they are included.

you are right man

I added the repo in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/repo.list and it was available in all my snapshots

thanks for your support
