If I created a post installation task and deploy it to a scripted installation, will users be able to see that bat?


The batch file will be a join domain command that contains credentials, so i was wonder will users see that info. I was looking for a easy way of joining the domain after prompting the computer name. Scripts included in Kace result in the same way as use unattended join in a xml file. I prefer not to do the presetup computer accounts in AD, alot of times I do more than 200 computers.

in your bat file you can do "@echo off"

Kace does have a built in post install task for joining the domain which uses a vbscript.

Either way, make sure that the KACE directory on the root of %systemdrive% gets deleted at the completion of the image, as that would have your .bat file in it.  There was a bug in 3.4 where kcleanup didn't run, you can resolve that by following this KB article:

  • thx for the answer, but i had problems prompting for computer name and joining the domain, being that the computer joined the domain before naming the computer . I saw a article on it, but my mind is blank after having a more than a week vacation.
    • Try the Get/Set Computer Name set of tasks. You can inject a name into the Windows answer file so when the computer joins the domain it already has the correct name. http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/Get-Set-ComputerName
