10.4: Create a Tiger image for cloned Net Installs
Authored by: dougalexander on Jul 08, '05 11:41:31AM
OK, so for anyone reading the original hint, don't. I realize now that what I've given you is the absolute longest, most painful way to make a Tiger disk image for Software Restore! Just read the comments and you'll get much better advice. My questions:
  1. What exactly the System Image Util provided by Apple actually do? A previous comment mentioned that it creates a .nbi set for use with NetBoot, but does this actually restore the disk, or just boot to that image? Does it offer the same number of post-actions that NetRestore does?
  2. Has anyone gotten multicast ASR to work in Tiger? I tried and failed - couldn't connect to the server. I suspect I was using a bad multicast address, but I have very little idea on how to choose a good one. My school network has only one router, the gateway to the Internet, so I'm not in danger of stepping on any router communications. Advice? Success stories?
Thanks for the helpful tips so far...

My utility, Mac HelpMate, has a GUI for the ASR Server portion of multicast imaging. It's available at http://www.macworkshops.com/machelpmate
