I am experiencing a wierd issue when creating and deploying an OS X image to the newest iBook, G5 and eMac platforms.
Upon creation/configuration of a base image, that includes verifying a managed profile (aka student login) has office application aliases available, the master image is created and compressed onto a firewire drive for mass deployment. However, upon actual deployment of the image, the once present aliases for the office applications have vanished! Currently the workaround is to log in as another manager user with elevated privs (aka teacher login) and launch the applications one at a time, thus recreating the aliases that once existed and suddenly vanished.
The idea is to mass image and not have to reboot and configure each one (logging in and re-launching the office apps is time consuming and a silly waste of time as it should have been included in the 'master' image to begin with)
Does anyone have any exposure or insight into this specific problem?
