Second update. I restarted the DeployStudio Admin console and now I have activity regarding a sparse image. Before I relaunched the admin console there was no sparse image in the tmp folder.

If I leave the admin console running should this resolve the problem? Any rough estimate how long it would take for 100GB image?

Thanks

They are located on the repository -> master -> tmp. I ran a master creation yesterday and unchecked "try to use local hard drive to limit bandwidth use" or something close to that so everything would be sent to the repository.

The tmp folder has the 100GB master & the recovery image but it's stuck there. Could I just move it to Masters -> HFS?

I'm running into trouble when creating a master from my 10.12 iMac. I've read that it can often be that the hard drive isn't large enough given the size of the image to be created. The image is roughly100GB & the SSD is 256GB. However when I searched through the logs I found no evidence of any error related to that. What I'm seeing is the master and recovery image uploaded to the tmp repository but never actually making it into the masters folder. I created the last master overnight, estimated 3 hours to create. I came back over 10 hours later giving it ample time to transfer to the Masters folder but it hasn't.

Here is the end of my log when the repository unmounts

#4 Install » DeployStudio Netboot without OS X Server » 2017-11-21 20:52:09

Hi all,

I've been running DS with an external hard drive setup and it has been working fine. One iMac in the lab runs the admin console and the hard drive points to it and has access to the repository. Albeit it slow at some times, it gets the job done. But the number of Macs I'll be in charge of will soon grow. I'd like to be able to simply netboot the clients rather than plug in the hard drive to each Mac. I do not have access to a Mac running OS X server.

Can DeployStudio run a netboot server on a Sierra or High Sierra?

Thanks for your input
