  1. Hello all, We’ve recently implemented SCCM (Current Branch) within our organisation. I’ve previously used SCCM 2003, but obviously some things have changed significantly! We’re having a similar issue to this post: https://www.windows-noob.com/forums/topic/12803-windows-10-enterprise-computer-name-problems-sccm-2012-r2-sp1/ When we deploy our Windows 10 image (1511 Education), we prompt for a computer name (stored in the OSDComputerName variable), however when the OSD TS completes, the machine is named WIN-XXXXXXXXX. I’ve examine the smsts.log file and can see the correct comput
  2. Hello all, hopefully you can help solving this issue that's bugging me for quite a time. When we're deploying new computers, or computers that are not in the sccm database, we use the OsdComputername variable to name the computer, it's working well but when I'm looking for the logs in the console under system status> advertisment status the default computer name (minint-xxx) appears in the system column instead of the given name, until the task "Setup windows and ConfigMgr" has completed (and still the new name is displayed only for the "Software Distribution" component. here is a s
  3. I am moving from WDS to SCCM 2012 for OSD. I have the image ready and deploys very nicely. The one thing that we need to do is, change the computer name based on the serial number. We set all of our names with the asset tag in the name. We have a DB that we scan all Serials, Asset Tags, Computer Name in. For example: Asset Tag: XXXXX Serial Number: 123456 Would have a computer name: LC0D401TO1XXXXX When using WDS we did this after the OS was installed using a bat file (code below). Now when doing this in SCCM 2012, the name either will not change or the computer will be delete
  4. Hi All, I was wondering what the best approach would be to assign multiple machines each with their own unique computer name during my deployment. I have been given the responsibility to deploy about 100 computers in an environment and needed to assign different computer names to each machine. Currently I have a setup using MDT for the actual deployment and WDS that is used for the PXE boot. Is there a way (preferable without using a PowerShell script) that I can deploy these machines? The reason I say preferably without PowerShell script is because I'm a rookie with scripting. If there is
  5. Hi guys.. I use thick images at my workplace because we don't have the infrastructure to do wds, lite or zt installs.. we've been using ghost forever I am trying to have windows 8 ask me for a computer name and join a specified domain.. the way i did it before was using MySysprep2 with the variables <computer>% input pc name%</computer> on my unattended, but it looks like MSP2 does not work with windows 8 .. does anyone have an alternative that will allow me to input the pc name before joining an existing domain? needless to say i also have this on my xml file:
  6. Hello, Anyone really figure out during Windows 7 sysprep to be prompted for a computer name and have it join your domain? I can have the machine stop and prompt for machine name but won't join domain. I used My Sysprep Tool, but don't trust it and typing in your password is in clear text, but it does work. I have tried to delete the line from the xml file but still doesn't prompt for computer name. Anyone have a working XML file to stop and ask for computer name then join it to the domain, while syspreping ?
