What You’ve Learned

  • When defining requirements for a system image, you must take into consideration user requirements, computer-specific requirements, software update requirements, and the pros and cons of using a unified system image.
  • Mac OS X’s managed preferences architecture is a more flexible alternative to including configuration settings in your system images.
  • You can create a deployable Mac OS X system image by cloning a model system that you have already configured. The clone process can be performed manually with Disk Utility or automated with System Image Utility (SIU).
  • You can use SIU to build a cleaner and easier-to-update system image by using prebuilt and custom installation packages.
