Capture and Deploy iMac Images
Is it possible to capture a iMac image using FOG Server and deploy it to other iMacs? If so how would you do that?
FOG can clone them, I’m not sure how well it works in practice, though. I don’t think they can be resized automatically, so they’d be captured full size, however.
Rather than send you down a path full of frustration I will say that Imaging on Macs is dead. JAMF, Deploy Studio etc are all echoing this sentiment. NetInstall/Recovery+DEP/prestage+MDM is Apple’s vision of how you set up their machines. If you are sticking with 10.12.6 and earlier and using HFS+ for the drive format I would say you should probably look at Deploy Studio, but at the same time don’t invest too much effort there as this is not going to be the move going forward.
