Netrestore Not Working (client sees image)
I've got a server i'm setting up to do one thing and I can't get it to work!
Here are the details:
I have a new mac mini with 10.8 server
I am trying to make this a net restore server. (we get new macs, and have a custom image that i want to install on them)
I have created an image using a spare volume on an external hard drive.
I used the server app to "Create Netrestore image from volume"
I have placed the image in the correct folder as all of the client computers can see the image in the startup disk preference pane
But when they reboot, i get the flashing globe and then it boots to the internal OS
I have the client directly connected over ethernet to the server's ethernet port (the client is a macbook air so i am using a thunderbolt to ethernet adapter
No firewall on the mini
It has a self assigned IP address, using DHCP
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,

Check that KB out first to make sure your use of Net Restore is correct. My setup is a Netinstall image with a Minimal Base OS as the Netboot image and then of course image from there via Casper but you could use anything to image like CCC or Disk Utility from there.
I like Apple stuff but, I am not in the Apple cult.

I had a similar problem, which was fixed by configuring the mac server and clients to be on the same subnet. all works fine now.
From what I understand, if you want to image across subnets you need to allow BSDP across subnets.
