comment Can't execute hdiutil create from remote machine
There is something strange with puppetstrings. Normally I would kill the script when I see the console display percent: -1.000000 because the man doc says that is an error code. This time I was doing a different task and didn't kill the script and when I came back I saw the image had been successfully created. So I was getting thrown off by the feedback from puppetstrings because when I don't have that feedback I just wait for the shell to come back without killing the script. Anyone else use the puppetstrings option with the create verb?

Now I just had it die on the local box. I'm now thinking it has something to do with the puppetstrings option or the path provided before the image name. When I successfully ran the command I didn't have puppetstrings or a path. I suspect puppetstrings because the numbers are off. The command dies with the console showing 78.651413 four times before going to -1.000000. Plus 78% isn't an accurate reflection of the new image file size compared to the expected image file size.
