So I have a brand new MacBook Pro with solid-state drive and the drive is formatted apfs. For testing purposes I created a fresh install of 10.13.2 on the laptop. So I was able to use the deploystudio  to create an image from the laptop. The drop-down box of the type of imaging trying to create did not have Apfs so I left it on automatic. The image did complete creating fine in the APFS folders in the master and there was 4 files in there. So to test a restore I went to disk utility and Erased and formatted it to apfs. Before I erased everything I did run a terminal come in to see my directory list and took a picture so I could compare after the restore was complete. So I ran to restore a master to the drive I did have first Drive selected. The restore completed fine but it did not restore the VM partition.  When I compare the new disk utility list from terminal it is not the same as it was prior. I will attach the two screenshots. is there some stuff I am missing or is there someway to push the VM photo to the machine? The system on the food without that you will get the ? Folder with trying to boot. Does anyone have any suggestions or any tips to make this work?

I created a new build today new  image from a USB and kept  The vision and a 10.13.1 and I was able to create in the netboot and it was fine i can now boot to it. The other tech that was having the issue with unable to create images was due to a faulty drive on the Mac.

I was originally on 10.13.1 and everything seem to be working fine. Today I decided based on reading the forms to update my server to 10.13.2 and make a new netboot file  since I read that it works a lot faster now.  I think I may have broke my server now since the new netboot file  when trying to boot from any machine on the network will act like it's going to connect to the server but it gets to the end and he gets a black screen and then reboot the machine .


So when this happened I decided to grab an old iMac 2011 model and building new to deploy studio from scratch with version 10.13.2.  I am still having the exact same issue with the new machine with net boots not working and getting the black screen.  I have an alternative server with 10.11.6 and everything is still working fine with that machine but I try to use the net booth that I created from 10.13.2 and it doesn't work  on that machine either hosting the file .

So at another site I had a tech make me a NetBoot file and that boots fine no issues.  It was from 10.13.1

I also have another tech that has updated to 10.13.2 and he is able to create new files fine with the version but he seems to be having a lot of crashing with the deploystudio now since.  He is able to sign into the netboot file and when he tries to create images from a Mac now after about an hour it will crash and not complete the creation of the image.  He has tried his old netboot from 10.13.1 and that also crashes now too when he tried to crest an image workflow.

So I am not sure why I am not able to create netboot files that work and I don't know why he is able to make them that will load but creating images with his Netboot files the workflow crashes. The only message he gets is workflow aborted and doesn't have time to check the log before it reboots.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to fix these issues?
