Offline Imaging

Overview

To prepare an external drive for offline imaging, you need to replicate the files on your master distribution point to an external drive and place a copy of Casper Imaging at the root of that drive.

Note: Casper Imaging cannot create a management account when imaging offline, which means computers imaged offline are not enrolled with the JSS.

Procedure

To prepare an external drive for offline imaging:

  1. (Optional) Create a bootable drive by installing a copy of macOS on the external drive.
  2. Connect the external drive to a host computer.
  3. Open Casper Admin on the host computer and authenticate to the JSS.
  4. Drag the external drive from the Finder to the sidebar in Casper Admin.
  5. Select the drive in the sidebar, and then click Replicate.
  6. Put a copy of Casper Imaging at the root of the external drive, at the same level as the Packages, Scripts, and Casper Data folders.

Below is the last part of the /var/log/jamf.log file. I tried manually running a jamf enroll but got different errors.
There are also 2 screenshots of the ladmin login keychain and the System keychain. There is not certificate in there from the JSS. Shouldn't that be added during the Casper Imaging process?

The file /Library/Preferences/com.jamfsoftware.jamf.plist does not exist. Use the createConf verb to create it.

You must specify a server name or JSS URL. Use the -server or -url flag.

I followed the steps but when I boot with the USB, it brings up the MacOS utilities box and not the Casper Imaging. What could have gone wrong here ??
