KACE Product Support Question


Computer name not applying to sysprepped image when deploying a KIMAGE

07/12/2013 2805 views

Not sure if this question is addressed somewhere else... I am trying to deploy a sysprepped image from my K2000 appliace via Image Deployment. I have a mid-level task that is supposed to apply the computer name to the image. After the imaging, it goes through the whole OOBE setup and then joins the domain with the domain join task. Which tasks do I need to run at mid-level to avoid the OOBE?

Do not put a machine name line in your answer file.

If you do not use the get/apply name scripts it will prompt for a name

You need to define all of the oobe parameters in your unattend.xml answer file.

  • Do I need to do that at the time I sysprep the machine? If so, can I still set the computer name on the fly?
    • Yes the Get/SetComputerName mid level tasks will put the name in your unattend file.
