I have created a NetInstall image of a OS X 10.6.6 machine in our organization for easy deployment of new machines. This has worked out great for us with the exception of the machines running fsck on boot which takes quite some time.
I have just found out that the partition on the NetInstall image does not have Journaling enabled. I assume that the two are related from what I have read on this Apple KB page:
"In an unjournaled file system, drives are in an unknown state after a failure, meaning that there is no record of their activity just prior to the shutdown. Before the server can restart and resume services, it must perform a consistency check that requires going through the entire file system, block by block. This process can take hours on a multi-terabyte volume, resulting in an unacceptable period of server downtime."
Am I correct in assuming so? Will simply enabling Journaling via Disk Utility stop the machine from running fsck on boot?
