We are setting up a new XenApp 6.5 farm. The farm is already setup, we added a second server to the farm for use as a template. Everything is running on Vmware.
First we prep the Xenapp server for imaging using the xenapp server role manager.
We then shut down the VM and convert it to a template.
The last step is to deploy a VM from the just created template using the customization wizard.
We fill in a new host name, ip address, join to the domain, ...
Problem now is that when we look at the farm there are 2 new servers added. One with a custom hostname (created by sysprep) and one with the name we specified.
Is there anyway we can work arround this problem? I also tried performing the sysprep in the OS itself but then i can't use the customization wizard. I just deployed the vm from my template without customization which results that the server is automatically joined to the farm with a bad hostname. At this moment the server is also still not joined to the domain.
