Trying to create an ASR image...

Hi, I am trying to create an ASR image that I can use to restore several labs. I may be mistaken in the use of SuperDuper! but I thought that under the "Options" button, one of the check boxes for "after copy" is to "Create a disk image of..." would result in an .dmg file that I could us the restore option under Apple's Disk Utility to restore another Mac... I have tried to use this .dmg file to restore another machine, but it will not work.

Any advice in this matter as to how I have gone wrong would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The way to do this is to use the "Disk Image..." choice in the destination pop-up. "Disk Image..." in Options creates a disk image that will only work if the machines are the same, whereas the one in the destination pop-up is disk size/layout independent.

I see, I was hoping to be able to use Apple's Disk Utility to perform the restore.

You can, actually. That generates a DMG too.

I'm not sure we are talking about the same thing but I figured it out. I can now use the .dmg file created by SuperDuper! WITH Apple's Disk Utility. I have always been able to create an .dmg with Apple's Disk Utility and then use it to restore other Macs, but had problems using the .dmg created with SuperDuper! and then using Apple's Disk Utility to do the restore. Took a little trial and error but it works especailly well now. Thanks for your fast replies.

I think we were, but my "dangling that" probably confused the situation. I meant that the "Disk Image..." choice in the destination pop-up also generates an image appropriate for use with ASR/Disk Utility.

In any case, glad you got it going.
