Network imaging with Fusion Drives

New Contributor

Does anyone know the best way to mass deploy an image to devices with Fusion drives? My recent experiences doing a network deployment of an image to a fusion drive seems to thoroughly mess up the fusion drive. I had discussed it with the "geniuses" at the Apple store and they told me you can't network image fusion drives. It doesn't work.

I find that hard to believe.

Any help would be great!

See this thread and see if it is applicable to your situation. There is an open defect regarding imaging Fusion Drives. If not, please provide more details.

It's definitely possible.
As long as you manually create the partitions first using disk utility you should then be able to image to the existing partition without problems. If your imaging process is trying to partition the drive as well, that's when it will fall over unless managed very carfully. Not sure what other products use but Deploy Studio has a specific task to use just for fusion drives.
