re: possible to image with no JSS?
I have synced a FW drive using Casper Admin: drag the drive into the Left Pane>Right Click the drive>sync it to the JSS
On same FW, I have boot partition(s)
I have the boot partition(s) auto-login to root and open Casper v 5.13 (known bug in Casper Imaging-on fix list)
Put Casper 5.13 in the Casper partition in the "Casper Data" folder with the data.xml file
This allows me to image offsite, and provides an extra disaster recovery source as well...
