I am trying to create a NetRestore image of Snow Leopard 10.6.8 so it can be rolled out to our other iMacs within the College
In 2010 I created a NetRestore image successfully using a standard iMac Snow Leopard 10.6.3, adding required software etc and then used System Image Utility to create a clone of the volume. I then copied the nbi\dmg file to our Mac Mini Server into Library/Netboot/NetbootSP0. I then successfully imaged our iMacs using the Mac Mini Server and NetBoot service.
Fast forward to 2012, time to update the image. I imaged one of the iMacs with the 2010 image and then updated the required software etc, Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I then went through the same process of cloning the volume using SIU and adding it to the Library/Netboot/NetbootSP0 folder. I then tried to image one of our machines with the new image but after the the spinning globe appeared, then the spinning circle the iMac shutdown completely.
I have searched online and found a a couple of articles http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3665 I tried this but it didn't work. I guessed it wouldn't as it's talking about an older version.
I also tried this http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3665 but when I tried to download the update the server admin tools on our Mac Mini Server, (configured as RAID 1) I got a message saying that the admin tools had top be installed on the same volume as Mac OSX. The Mac Mini Server is running OSX Server 10.6.8.
