I know I'm not alone with this frustration about Disk Utility imaging in High Sierra. With Apple trying to move away from Disk Utility as a supported way of disk imaging, many admins are left in limbo. For years I have been able to use disk utility (via Target disk or recovery mode) to take and restore pre-built images. It seems it is no longer straightforward in High Sierra. I have tried every possible way I can think of to take an image and then deploy it, but the deployment is not working. Does anyone have experience in successfully creating and deploying disk images in High Sierra? I'm not looking for 3rd party cloning recommendations (though that may come later) - just a way to get it working in disk utility like it used to. Thanks!
