I noticed that on a brand new 10.8.1 image, generated using Lightning + Install OS X Mountain Lion.app, had spotlight disabled by default on /.
After applying the 10.8.1 image to a machine and running mdutil -s /, it showed that spotlight indexing was disabled.
I mounted the 10.8.1 Image and ran mdutil -s /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD\ 1 and it also showed that spotlight indexing was disabled.
It appears that indexing is disabled when the image is created, but then when repair-permissions.sh runs, spotlight indexing is never re-enabled. (credit goes to frogor from ##osx-server on irc.freenode.net for this info)
Can anyone else confirm this behavior?
