10.13 WorkFlows With Fusion Drives

I finally have 10.13 restoring APFS to SSD's and HFS to Spinning drives. The last hurdle I have encountered is fusion drives. Something in the process of restoring to a fusion drive with 10.13 is not working.

invalid target disk is the error I see in the log.

Core Storage is create ( just like 10.12.6)
Volume is Named (just like 10.12.6)
Deploystudio is configured to restore to a specific Volume Name
Very important for my dual boot configurations
Workflow ends before the restore begins with the error invalid target disk.

Again this is only an issue with Fusion drives ( on SSD and Spindle drives using first disk available does work)

Netboot Set made from AutoDMG image of 10.13.1
Deploystudio version 1.7.8

Re: 10.13 WorkFlows With Fusion Drives

APFS was supported on fusion drives in one of the high sierra developer betas prior to the golden master release, none of the releases since have supported it but Apple will likely support APFS on fusion drives again in the future.

Hopefully, they'll just stop supplying machines with fusion drives, and pony up for plain old SSD drives.
