SCCM - using vbscript to set computer name....no longer joins domain

Hi

I have created a script that will name computers when imaging computers in sccm during a task sequence.

Ive added this task just before the "Apply Windows Settings" task.

The computer then does not join the domain (it joins the domain if i remove this task). I have looked at the answer file and the computer name is added and the answer file does validate when used in Windows Image Manager.

Can anyone help with the computer naming step? Am I putting the step in the wrong location?

Thanks in advance
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2") 

Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_SystemEnclosure") 
For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS 
	strNewName = objSMBIOS.SerialNumber 
Next
strNewName = "XYZ-" & Ucase(strNewName)
 
Set env = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment") 
env("OSDCOMPUTERNAME") = strNewName
WScript.Echo "New computer name is " & strNewName

Open in new window

Hi Everyone

Thanks for the help.

The problem turned out to be the delegation permissions of the user account used to join the computer to the domain. It did not have permission to join a computer account if it already existed (for example if the computer account was already in the computers OU, the account did not have permission to move that account to the Windows 7 OU).

You have to restart computer after change computer name
and before joining domain.

Just add RESTART step.
