Pulling OSDComputername into Powershell for Task Sequence

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I'm still fairly new to the OSD  task sequence portion for Imaging and Re-imaging in SCCM. 

I need help with the Powershell cmdlets on how to call/carry over the OSDComputername variable from a previous Task Sequence step, which I believe contains the  Computer name from reading the information in the BIOS,  over to the Powershell environment so that I can run  the following powershell commandline : remove-adgroup -identity "$computername-admin"

At my work,  some of the workstations have security groups named after their computername appended with the “-admin”  This is to keep track of members who require admin rights on otherwise locked down workstations.  We often have workstations being rotated where a PC may be re-assigned to another employee and I would like to automate inside a task sequence during a re-image to just delete any existing “Computername-admin” security group in AD so that we can start fresh. 

I hope my need for help makes sense.  If not please ask and I’ll try my best to explain further.

how about something simple like this...

 

$tsenv = New-Object -COMObject Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment
$tsenv.Value("OSDComputerName") = $OSDComputerName

I'm not infront of my computer but this can be inverted so that you can get or set $OSDComputerName

$tsenv = New-Object -COMObject Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment
$tsenv.Value("OSDComputerName") = $OSDComputerName

I'll fire up my lab and show some examples shortly...

$tsenv = New-Object -COMObject Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment
$OSDComputerName = $tsenv.Value("OSDComputerName")
