MDT OSDComputerName by geographic department, tasksequence version and serialnumber

Hi all,

I have only worked with MDT for 1½ month, however i got a good feeling, but i don't seem to be able to find answers to my current question:

To start: We do not have SCCM, just clean WDS and MDT 2013

i have created a successfully deployment in our company, for our two departments, this i have done by create OSDcomputername selection by DefaultGateway selection.

However, we have two task sequences, TS "A0" and "A1", theese are two independent images, for our Client Service department and for our Development department.

So what i would like, is If TS A0 is selected from Denmark the computername will be DEN7A0-%SerialNumber% and for Sweden it will be SWE7A0-%SerialNumber% and so for TS A1.

I don't know if i could create some kind of custom variable to define the Geographic locations under the task sequence step in CS.ini instead of the DefaultGateway priority selection.

Could you help me figure out this?


Currently my example of cs.ini
[Settings]
Priority=Model, DefaultGateway, TaskSequenceID, Default
Properties=MyCustomProperty

[DefaultGateway]
	x.x.1.1=Denmark
	x.x.2.1=Sweden

[Denmark]
OSDComputername=DAN7A0-%SerialNumber%
[Sweden]
OSDComputername=SWE7A0-%SerialNumber%

[A0]
OSInstall=Y
	SkipCapture=YES
	SkipAdminPassword=YES
	SkipProductKey=YES
        ....
[A1]
OSInstall=Y
	SkipCapture=YES
	SkipAdminPassword=YES
	SkipProductKey=YES
        ....

The script ZTIGather.wsf retrieves information during the build. Have a look at the information retrieved during a winpe session and depending on the AD sites you could try something like

OSDComputerName=%Site%-%SerialNumber%

DefaultGateway should take care of it

Nagrendra, I don't think you understood my question correct.

It is true i can define what office by DefaultGateway.
Right now Country is defined in the DefaultGateway settings for Sweden or for Denmark. but it does not change what TaskSequence that is selected. so if i select TS: A1 computername will be DEN7A0-%serialnumber% (see the customsettings part for define OSDComputerName below:


[DefaultGateway]
      x.x.1.1=Denmark
      x.x.2.1=Sweden

[Denmark]
OSDComputername=DAN7A0-%SerialNumber%
KeyboardLocale=da-DK
[Sweden]
OSDComputername=SWE7A0-%SerialNumber%
KeyboardLocale=sv-SE

What i want to is define so computername will be selected somehow like (see the diagram)

1st part: Location (set by DefaultGateway for Denmark or Sweden) <-
2th part: Windows Version (Windows 7)
3rd part: What Image/TaskSequence is deployed (A0 or A1)
4th part: Computer Serialnumber (%serialnumber%)

Diagram of OSDComputerName Example

how would i comply the settings to be as the diagram?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You can change variables in task sequence I guess. I will check more.

I found another way to solve this:

Refer to:
http://deploymentbunny.com/2013/03/06/back-to-basiccustomsettings-inisample-2/

Refer to above, I created a property called %OSDLocation% to define location in for the computername

it resulted in:

Priority=Model, DefaultGateway, TaskSequenceID, Default
Properties=MyCustomProperty, OSDSite

[DefaultGateway]
      x.x.1.1=Denmark
      x.x.2.1=Sweden

[Denmark]
OSDlocation=DEN
KeyboardLocale=da-DK
[Sweden]
OSDlocation=SWE
KeyboardLocale=sv-SE

[A0]
OSDComputername=%OSDSite%7A0-%SerialNumber%	
[A1]
OSDComputername=%OSDSite%7A1-%SerialNumber%

This will output Computer is from Sweden or Denmark, and if TS A0 or A1 is deployed
