I am currently stumped on deploying a mac image that includes the recovery partition. We need this to support device encryption. I referenced the below document and have not been able to make any progress as this seem to be referencing an older OSX version. I tried to update the scripts to my current version but the deployment now stops with "remaining partition space is too low."

https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/131931

I contacted support and the informed me that they dont support this and that I should ask my question on ITNinja.  Any help you can provide will be much appreciated.

Thanks!

  • hi, did you get this sorted as i want to add recovery pations to my mac images thanks
  • if its any help, i extracted the .sh file from the installer and edit line 30 to inc Disk Size instead of Total size. then i added this script as a pre install task, i selected the System Image Detail to force continue on errors and so far so good.
  • The following two articles helped me out a lot. Had to update the Create Partition and the Recovery Partition tasks and was able to successfully deploy the recovery partition. The articles explain why the changes are necessary.
