    1. In the Create Disk Image dialog, select Mac Image (*.dmg) from the ImagingTool drop-down list.
    2. Provide the disk number in the Additional Parameters field using the following
    format:
    -d[disk#]
    By default, all partitions of disk 1 are imaged. To image a different disk, provide the
    disk number in the Additional Parameters field using the same format.
    3. Enter the path and file name to store the disk image.
    Caution The captured disk image must be stored on an AppleTalk Filing Protocol (AFP) share.

    4. Select Disable image path validation if you want to store the image file outside of the Deployment Share file structure. If you do not select this option and do not specify a Deployment Share path, a warning message appears, reminding you to configure your automation process to use the path indicated in the Name field. You can still save your image to a location outside of the Deployment Share file structure even when you do not select this option. This option only eliminates the warning message.

    You can use this option to store images locally on the managed
    computer's hard drive or to an additional server used to store images.
    When storing images locally on the managed computer's hard drive, ensure that youenter the path relative to the managed computer (Example: C:\myimage.img).

    When you store an image locally on a managed computer instead of a file server,you save server disk space and reduce network traffic.
    Prerequisite: To store images locally on the managed computerís hard drive, youmust have a hidden automation partition installed on the managed computer's hard disk with the required disk space to hold the images you want to store.
    Caution When imaging computers where images are stored on the managed computerís
    hidden automation partition, use the option to remove the automation partition only
    when you want to clear all images from the computer.

    5. (Optional) Select the Do not boot to Production option if you do not want the
    computer to boot to Production before creating the image.

    6. From the Automation pre-boot environment (DOS/WinPE/Linux) drop-down
    list, select the required pre-boot environment to perform the Create Disk Imagetask in the selected pre-boot environment. By default, the Default Automation
    (Auto-select) type is selected.
