Name Windows 7 system by Service Tag (Serial Number) at Deployment?
Currently I have the unattend naming the computer randomly and also joining it to the domain. As a postinstall taskI am using WSName to change the name in the domain to the systems Service Tag (or Serial Number).
I am having an issue with this process. Most of the time it works great. However, with a small number of machines it fails to rename the machine in the domain, and when you attempt to rename it manually it throws an error that the machine doesn't actually exist in the domain.
The workaround so far has been to manually unjoin and rejoin the offending machines. I would like to figure out an alternative way of doing this and hopefully avoid whatever issue is currently bugging up this process.
Is it possible to name the system by its service tag during one of the unattend passes? Google searches have revealed that this is readily possible when deploying with MDT, but I am using the K2000.
