Changing name on cloned computer and add it to Active Drectory
Posted on 2009-04-22
I'm using Acronis Snap Deploy to administer a bunch of computer for educational use. They have to be cloned whenever new software is installed, but they also have to be reset once in a while in between major changes.
To make this happen, I have to let cloned pc get a new SID after cloning. Snap Deploy can handle the renaming after all pc has been cloned, but not when 'resetting' them. And when the pc gets a new SID, I have to re-add it to Active Directory.
How do I solve this?
Oh, I forgot to mention: it has to be done automatic...
The students don't have the knowledge to do anything, so it's has to be an automatic initiated batch job.
