    Hello,
    We just got our X serve up and running and will be imaging our macs to push out images to each new mac placed on to the network. With this case I am looking for a way to sysprep a mac if all possible. I am not for sure how its done and looking to all you genius' to help me out. Any guidance would be greatly appreciatied!

    Thanks

    I'm also curious how this would be done.

    I'll guess the XServe - with storage (holding OS X Leopard/Snow Leopard) can possibly be set to assign the Mac's via OpenDirectory, or via ActiveDirectory. Once the Macs (windows world uses AssetTags) are setup there, then placing the Macs to boot off LAN can connect to the XServe held image and push out or pull the image from XServe to prep the Macs. Again its a guess.

    Maybe stating a lil' more of how your network is setup may assist those more knowledgeable into helping you.
