K2000: Scripted Installation to join and rename computers in AD environent
I have successfully deployed my first scripted install with drivers and everything! I am now looking to do an install that will automate computer names. Here is our scenario:
We have about 50 computers coming in for a refresh and I need to streamline this as much as possible for the helpdesk guys. I need the script to rename the computers sequentially without having to do it by hand. Is there anyway to do this? For example, we have in AD in a certain OU, workstations named like so: wrk1234, wrk1233 etc. I need the script to somehow either by manual input or by reading the AD envirnonment (ambitious i know) to start the computer names sequentially so we dont have to do it each time manually, I would THEN like it to join it to the domain as that computer.
I am also looking to automate software installs as well.
