Create a Configuration

After you add an OS package to Casper Admin, create the configuration that you will use to image computers. Configurations are modular images that allow you to quickly specify what needs to be installed and configured on computers during imaging. Unlike standard images, you can easily make changes to configurations without rebuilding them.

Note: If you are using Casper Admin on a computer with OS X v10.5 or v10.6, you will need Casper Admin v9.4 or earlier.
