This issue has been fixed in Deployment Solution 8.1 Release Update (RU) 4.

As a workaround for DS 8.1 RU2/RU3, you might have a need to change the package storage location on a Package Server due to disk size concerns.  If this is the case then as a work around it is recommended that you install the Symantec Management Agent to a drive with more disk space than C:\.  This method is currently supported and will allow imaging to work.
