Okay guys,

I have been searching and testing and can not find anything that will help. What I want is to have a script/batch file that I can run after Sysprep that will uncheck "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" and uncheck the "Enable LMHOSTS lookup"

I use the default network settings in the Sysprep and of course those setting go back to the defaults. I know I can just go and uncheck them, but I was hoping for some thing a little more elegant.

Thanks

Hiya

Change the yourdomainnamehere part, save this as a .vbs file, and set it to run at startup.  Voila!

NOTE: - I'm pretty flat out here at work, but if you want explanations, I can come back in a couple of days and explain the parts :)

----------------------

On Error Resume Next

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objNicConf = objWMIService.Get("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")

intWinsEnable = objNicConf.EnableWINS(True, False, "", "yourdomainnamehere")

Set colNicConfigs = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
 ("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")

For Each objNicConfig In colNicConfigs
      intDNS = objNicConfig.SetDynamicDNSRegistration(False, False)
Next

--------------------------------

Okay that is a start. But, but your link only points to the scripting center. What script were you thinking about?

essaydave -- looks to work. points will be awarded.
An explainations would be good. I believe that in your first object

intWinsEnable = objNicConf.EnableWINS(True, False, "", "yourdomainnamehere")

True = WINS Enabled
False = LMHOSTS disabled
"" = Location of LMHOST file
"yourdomainnamehere" = Scope ID

for second object

intDNS = objNicConfig.SetDynamicDNSRegistration(False, False)

False = FullDNSRegistrationEnabled -- which is the unchecking of "register this connection's address in DNS"
False = DomainDNSRegistrationEnabled which is the default right?

Let me know if I am on the right track.
