What's up everybody!
Ever since High Sierras inception, we've been imaging using the following commands in Terminal. And its been working great for us! To create the image we would use:
hdiutil create -srcdevice disk2 -format UDZO /Volumes/ExternalDiskNameHere/ImageNameHere.dmg
and to restore the image if not scanned, we would use:
asr restore --source /Volumes/ExternalDiskNameHere/ImageNameHere.dmg --target /dev/disk2 --erase --noverify
And if the image was scanned:
asr restore --source /Volumes/ExternalDiskNameHere/ImageNameHere.dmg --target /dev/disk2 –erase
Now that 10.13.4 was released, the hdiutil command to create the .dmg still works, but the asr restore command does not. When we try to restore with ASR, we get:
Couldn't find container disk for Image "image .dmg path" on the external drive, and Couldn't attach source image "image path to .dmg". Could not validate source - Invalid Argument
We've searched high and low with no avail. Anyone familiar with ASR and can maybe help us out? What the heck changed that we can't image like this anymore?!?! Thanks a bunch!
