Awesome Thanks! What script has the bless command? Or if you used a different command what is it?
In CloneDeploy 1.2.0 there was a section for editing core scripts in the Global > Imaging Scripts setting. I cannot seem to find that in my deployment of 1.3.3. I just want to make sure I'm not missing some crucial piece of the server setup. There have been a few quirks in upgrading as you know. So if there is a different location or specialized account (although I'm logged in as an admin). Thanks
Of course I tested again today with two devices that imaged just fine from 10.12 to 10.13 with no issue. Here's the log for the first device I tested where on reboot I had a ? folder however once choosing the volume Macintosh HD it booted just fine.
Update on imaging from Sierra to High Sierra. After upgrading to CloneDeploy 1.3.3 and working though a couple of hick-ups getting the NetBoot service working I have been able to image Sierra to High Sierra successfully. I did not have to use the extracted firmware package as chronicled in the link you provided above. Initially when imaging I received a warning from CloneDeploy (thank you for putting that bit of code in) that imaging hfsf+ to apfs could result in an unbootable drive. The result, however has been a perfectly bootable drive. The only issue is that the volume does not get blessed at the end of imaging so initial boot will be a question mark folder. This is reminiscent of when you first added Mac support and PXE booting obviously did not have access to the mac command line and could not bless the drive. So my question is this: Is it possible to add a post script to be run at the end of the Mac imaging to bless the drive? If so where would I add this in CloneDeploy? Thanks for all the hard work, and hanging in there bucking the Apple Juggernaut.
That worked adding that to the config file. I can now boot into apple netboot, however after the upgrade to 1.3.3 I cannot upload an image. I get an error that mounting the smb share failed. After changing the user passwords in both the web interface and on the server I went through your SMB troubleshooting documentation. Everything looks good until I get to step 6 booting into the console. When I attempt to mount the share with user cd_share_rw and the password that I reset and verified I receive a message that mounting the share failed and permission was denied. Are there certain characters I should avoid when creating this password?
The nbis are in C:\Program Files (x86)\clonedeploy\application\public\macos_nbis\0001\ per your instructions here: https://clonedeploy.org/docs/using-the-macos-imaging-environment/
So change that in the config.ini file? Also when making the nbi?
Here's the latest log from IIS
It gets past the spinning globe and then the progress bar continues to the end and then it just hangs. That error is the only thing I see in the logs for today and the only thing that I've done today is to try and netboot a client. I made the nbi with autodmg and yesterday's download of the 10.13.2 installer.
As I mentioned earlier I uninstalled 1.3.0 beta, deleted the left over clonedeploy folder and then installed 1.3.0 and copied the patch folders for 1.3.3 over. I had to recreate the base url from http://[serverip]/clonedeploy to http://[serverip]/clonedeploy/service/client.asmx/ and looking at that error it looks like some api files may need to be rebuilt.
I finally found this in the logs:
2017-12-21 10:55:48,851  ERROR CloneDeploy_ApiCalls.ApiRequest Response Data Was Null For Resource: api/ActiveImagingTask/RecreatePermanentTasks/
Sorry, I forgot to change .log to .txt. Hopefully this time it comes through.
