Hi,

I am trying to setup a fully automated deployment solution and just have on hurdle to surpass.  I know I can login once as admin with sysprep; however, is there a way with WMI scripting or something to have it login once more?

I need to login as admin out of sysprep once and run a script which renames the computer/ip address.  It then needs to reboot and I need it to login one more time to add it to the domain.

Any suggestons are greatly appreciated!

This one tells how to enable dhcp with a script and is directed towards large networks.  You would have to change some parameters though, I sure.

I figured it out -- you can set the Auto Login Feature in sysprep to login as many times as necessary :-)  Thanks!
