    Hi Tobiasclarity. How did you mange to get it working in the end? Did you change anything or just get lucky on the 3rd attempt? I too have an old XServe (which always used to work creating images) Should I just try to create the image using that?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi John,

    Do you know what in the end i ditched the whole process and manually imaged the last 14 machines. I could create the image fine using XServe but then when i had deployed it was replicating the serial number of the host machine across the clients i was deploying to which is a common problem (reading through the net) and meant when joining them to the profile manager it just fell over. i just didnt have the time to spend fixing it as we only have a few clients.
