@bentoms and other AutoCasperNBI users... I am having trouble figuring out how to solve this. Issue is when when applying a 10.11.1 image (15B42 created with autoDMG..no addl pkgs) and utilizing v1.3.0 of AutoCasperNBI. The process seems to kick off fine, runs for a while and write a fair amount of data ... but then after a while, the process halts with "Error: Generating Kernel cache"
I have looked through the logs...(snippet below)

...I see the error, but I am not sure for what reason that the kernelcache kext couldn't be used/written. The NBI directory that is written is 10.26GB in size so there is certainly a payload. I am looking through the code: https://github.com/macmule/AutoCasperNBI/blob/master/AutoCasperNBI/AutoCasperNBIAppDelegate.applescript
but I am not understanding where the problem is. This is the area of the code I was trying to look through, but I'm not exactly sure what I am looking for.
-- Generate the Kernel cache on generateKernelCache_(sender) try ---- MAKE x86_64 FOLDER ---- -- Update Build Process Window's Text Field set my buildProcessTextField to "Creating x84_64 folder" delay 0.1 -- Update build Process ProgressBar set my buildProcessProgressBar to buildProcessProgressBar + 1 ...
Anyone have any ideas or able to help me decipher what I'm looking at? I appreciate the help in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
No sir, I installed AutoCasperNBI per update pop-up (running 1.2 previously). I suppose I could re-download it if you think this may be the culprit ... I am having issues in the scenario I listed on 2 separate Dist. Pts. Would DP's OS matter at all? These two happens to be running 10.9.5... that's the only oddity that I can think of
@bentoms I can certainly throw any additional log files your way like I mentioned before... just let me know if you need anything.
Anyway, I downloaded the pre-release (1.3.1) and re-building right now! I'll update you later today
EDIT: @bentoms -- 1.3.1 did the trick! I am no longer receiving the error and was able to build our new NBI; tested deployment as well...all good! Thanks for the help on this sir
