10.4: Create a Tiger image for cloned Net Installs
Authored by: dougalexander on Jul 06, '05 02:46:58PM

Of course I tried this first, being a loyal NetRestore acolyte, but it failed on me late in the imaging process, no idea why. Which is why I resorted to the Disk Util manual process. Have you gotten NetRestore Helper to work on Tiger yourself?

With no disrespect to Disk Utility or any OSX Server imaging tools, I still use NetRestore and NetRestore Helper, now in Tiger with G5s. No problems, here. I can't get enough of the feature to rename, set IP, clear by hosts, etc in NR. Works. I love it. Bombich rocks.

10.4: Create a Tiger image for cloned Net Installs

Were you by any chance running a developer seed of tiger? I've rolled out about 10 of the 50 macs I manage with Tiger images created with Netrestore. The one major problem I encountered was with the version of ASR that was included with my developer seeded version of Tiger.

I was only one release behind GM (8a425) but ASR had not been updated and still had the old command line switches. Netrestore Helper copied this binary off my system to create the netrestore image, and that image was totally whack once I tried to boot some machines off it. Recreating the netboot-netinstall image from a GM version of tiger fixed everything up.
