The school I work with just bought 33 new imacs and 30 new macbooks all that have snow leopard instead of leopard.
Partially my fault cuz I didn't look at the order close enough. It isn't a total issue though because the parental controls on Snow Leopard really gave me the options I needed which is a plus.
My issue of course is getting an image to push out as I don't want to do them all by firewire/ethernet (laptops no long have firewire connections).
We have 10.5 servers so obviously the SIU on them will not let me image 10.6 machines.
Per some instructions on Apple's page, I loaded one of the 10.6 desktops with the 10.6.2 Server Admin tools.
I ran the SIU off of that system which did pick up the system I had in Target Disk Mode.
I just did the standard Net Restore creation, no additional packages or anything.
The system creates the image but then at stage 2 it always fails. Doesn't give me any useful info either, just says that it failed.
The Source machine for the image was also 10.6.2 (I know 10.6.3 is out but thought upgrading to 10.6.3 was the issue the first time I tried it).
I am thinking about getting a MAC Mini w/ Server 10.6 on it, but I don't want to drop the cash if it is going to have the same issue as the Client 10.6 machine had running the server admin tools.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any help.
