Hello,

We are new to SCCM 2012. Having come from a previous place that used Ghost Solutions Suite, I am used to imaging a PC, and then having Symantec rename the computer what its previous name was, and join it to the domain, keeping it in its previous OU. Is this something that can be done in SCCM 2012, or do I have to rename the computer after an OS has been deployed to it. The client will be installed on the workstations.

Thanks
