DSPICE

Computer Name based on the OU that it is put into when it joins the domain

Recommended Posts

I have been wrestling with for sometime.

 

SCCM 2012 sp1

MDT 2012 Integration

I am using UDI Wizard along wth customsettings.ini

 

Goal:

I want to have users get the UDI wizard and choose the settings like what OU they want the computer to go into during the task sequence.

I then want the computer name to be based on the OU that has been chosen eg:

 

If the user picks Eastern Regions in the UDI Wizard then during the taks sequence the name of the computer will be be based on the OU that the computer is put int for example - EASw7L-%serial%

 

I need help understanding how to setup the variables using OSDDomainOUName if needed and what step to use this in the Join Domain vs Apply Network Settings.

 

We can do a remote connection so you can see whats going on if that will make things easier.

 

 

Thanks for any help with this!

Resolved this one:

 

1. Using UDI add domain and OUs

2.TS variable Options section = OSDDomainOUName

condition = equals

Value = OU=COMPUTERS,OU=IT SERVICES,OU=CLIENT MANAGEMENT,DC=mydomain,DC=LOCAL

3. on the same Step TS Variable = OSDComputerName Value = LAPW7T-%SerialNumber%

4. Make sure and put this step or group after Apply Network Settings

This is a great post. Anyway we can receive screenshots of your steps? This is exactly what I need as we have 21 global locations and we need to automatically populate by location and serialnumber... I would appreciate more detail in your steps so I can copy it for our environment.
