The tool performs the following steps internally:

Cleans up the copy of the file tree by removing various temporary files that ought not be present in a snapshot.
Updates /etc/sysconfig/readonly-root to make the root filesystem read-only.
Updates /etc/sysconfig/kudzu to stop kudzu from asking questions about the hardware it detects when booting a client.
Updates the LDAP database to create a record of the snapshot.
