Windows XP to Windows 7 Refresh - Existing AD Accounts

Recommended Posts

I apologize if this has been talked about, but I have searched around quite a bit and have not found the answer I am looking for.


Is there a way to have the machine join the domain using an existing object in AD? Here is the network portion of the task sequence I am using:


1. Migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7 using SCCM 2007 sp2 OSD

2. Starting the process from an advertised task sequence on the machine to be refreshed

3. Apply Network Settings - Join a Domain: premconf.com Domain OU: LDAP://OU=New Builds,OU=Premiere Computers,DC=premconf,DC=com

Account: domain account we use to join machine to domain.


I assume this is happening because I am specifying the OU...I did see a post on this site that talked about using a variable for the Domain OU, but was unsure if that would fix this issue.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

When a computer object already excists in the AD, it will stay where it was during the deployment.


So even though I have a specific OU selected in the network settings, it will override if it sees an object in a different OU?


Thanks for your help
