WDS - Client Naming Policy Not Working
Posted on 2013-01-25
I'm trying to deploy Windows 7 x64 Ent Machines out, and need the machines named ws01, ws02, ws03 etc.
I went into WDS properties and specified the client naming policy as "ws%02#". I did not include a computername in the unattend xml file.
Basically when the machine boots, the user is prompted for a computer name. Which wouldn't be so bad by itself, however by this stage the system has already been joined to the domain as a random name.
Any help with getting the correct name and getting the clients domain joined would be greatly appreciated.
