Hi All,

I was hoping for some help with image creation....

I am looking to automatically add a machine to the domain without user interaction. How would i set this up??

Thanks for your help in advance

Mike

There should be a built-in post-installation task to automatically join the machine to a domain. I think it's called "Example: Join Domain". You can also join a system to the domain during a scripted installation's OS install by adding the appropriate unattend information - or by using the wizard.

Thanks for the help. There does not seem to be a built in task to add to domain, apart from a mac machine [&:].

I have managed to find a script online, unfortuntately all machines are remote to me and network boot is not up and running yet.... so i am waiting for a colleague to assist on this side.

how would i add the pc to domain using unattend info? sorry, very new to this side of things....

Thanks

Just do a Google search for "sysprep join domain" and you should find the unattend parameters. My K2100 had an "Example: Join Domain" post-installation task, so you've either deleted it or this is something they've recently added to new K2100's. I'm sure support can get you setup with the script for the post-installation task, but I can't post the VBS here.

that i shall do, thanks.. I have created a script, but it has not worked.... What i need to know though is if the pc has actually tried to run the post install tasks we have set. Is there a way to find this out, as at the moment i all i can tell is that the image has been deployed, nothing else..

Thanks

michaelb The simplest way to determine if a task ran at all is to have it do something else also, like write a text file or reg key somewhere. If you're having the system restart after the join domain, make sure youre having the restart wait a few (10-30) seconds before it restarts. "shutdown -r -f -t 10" works well for me. Also feel free to contact me directly or [email=support@kace.com]support@kace.com[/email] for the Join domain script that's included on your K2; we'll send it to you if you want.
