Mac Image - Status 6

Hi all, trying to capture and deploy a new i5 based Macbook pro, I created a netboot environment using the OSX disc that shipped with the laptop without issue.

Updated the mac with all the software needed, netbooted using Bombich's Netboot utility and captured the image, all of that worked fine.

I then tried to deploy the image back to the same machine and it erases the drive, formats it, and starts to push the image down, it gets to 9.18GB of 14 and then gives an exit error with "Status 6". The image appears to be fine in KBOX and it's the correct size and all of, browsing through the image on KBOX shows all of the files are there in the image.

I've searched the forums and the web without success on finding out what this code, any help would be really appreciated.

We had a similar issue in which we could not complete an image deployment on any one of our Macs - the deployment process would halt and fail in the same place every time.

We opened a ticket with Kace and after some troubleshooting steps (checking the disk image, removing the file that the image was getting stuck on) we still could not resolve the problem. The issue ended up being a problem with the RAID driver on the physical machine the KBOX was running on (We have a KBOX 2000 running on the Dell server that they sell). We ended up having to restore the KBOX OS with a new version that corrected the driver issue.

I'm not saying this is the exact issue you are experiencing, but we got our KBOX 2000 shortly after they were acquired by Dell and once the issue was diagnosed, Kace support mentioned that a small number of KBOX 2000's on Dell hardware may be affected by this.
