Windows 7 Sysprep and computer names
Posted on 2013-01-24
I'm trying to deploy Windows 7 Pro x64 machines using sysprep.
I've done this several times before, and the naming scheme was just randomised, i.e. "computername" was "*", so the name was "company-xxxxxxx".
However, for this deployment, this is not appropriate and I need to name the machines like "ws01", "ws02", "ws03" etc. I understand that we can write a script to deploy after the sysprep and name the machines, however this would kick the machines off the domain and defeat the purpose of unattended join.
Has anyone ever done this type of thing before? Or is there anything anyone could suggest to help accomplish this?
Please let me know if you require any further information.
