  1. Hi everyone, I am working on a new TS after we have begun migrating from MDT 2013 to SCCM 2012 R2 v1511. The issue I have is that we want to be able to automatically rename machines based on the Device Affinity. I can import the machine into SCCM no problem... When it comes to my Task Sequence, I have setup a step called Gather based on MDT. I have then setup another step called Set Computer Name, this references OSDComputername and points to the Variable: %_SMSTSMachineName% This doesn't work and I end up getting the standard MIN_INT etc name. How can I resolve this? At the moment I am working on a Windows 7 image but I will also need to apply this to Windows 10 as well. I know as another resort, I can amend the Unknown Computers Collection - but I'd rather have it automated, as we'll be having our supplier send us a list of MAC addresses and Asset stickers which will be used to generate the name at the point where the machine is being built. Any help would be appreciated.
