Hi @kdmiller45,

can you tell me what inside your .tar file? If you want build image from .tar file makesure inside .tar is Dockerfile

Yeah, I see no dockerfile there. If you want to create some image, you can build using dockerfile (you can find the documentation here https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/ )
