My MacBook Pro 2018 T2 Experience / Questions

I installed High Sierra 17G2208 to an external drive with a new MBP.
While booted from the external drive:
I installed DeployStudio 1.7.8
I used AutoDMG to create a new image for DeployStudio and copied it to my DeployStudio server.
I used the Assistant to create a USB key.

On my DeployStudio server, I removed the partition part from my workflow as I could not get it to work. I updated the restore in the workflow with the new image( 17G2208 ).

While booted from the external drive I format ( erase ) the internal container and unmount it using Disk Utility.  ( If I don't unmount it, it does not show up in the workflow as /dev/disk1s1 )
Is there a way to refresh the disks list from within the runtime without restarting it?
I start the DeployStudio runtime and select my workflow and it completes as expected.  I get a successful install.

If I boot from the USB key created with the Assistant, and use Disk Utility to erase and unmount.  When I run the workflow, the restore has the following error:

Inverting target volume...
APFS inverter failed to invert the volume - Invalid argument
Command failure: XSTA       fail
Restoration failed

The asr command is identical on the two scenarios.  Why does it fail when booted from the USB key?

I would really like to get the USB key to work.

Any thoughts appreciated.
Thank you.
