ComputerName in OOBE Windows 10 Pro Sysprep Machine

    Description

    Hello, I have the following situation here: I have the FOG server, and a machine with Windows 10 Pro 64x, which I want to capture the image using Sysprep and an unattend file.

    However, in this unattend file I would like to be setting an automatic entry in the domain. My problem is in Windows 10 no longer asking the computer name in OOBE anymore when <ComputerName> </ ComputerName> tag is * (which for me is a necessary step, so I can customize the name of the target machine) .

    Returning to FOG, I thought of solutions like CloneDeploy (http://clonedeploy.org/), where it edits the unattend file, editing the <ComputerName> </ ComputerName> tag and putting the hostname that was defined in Web interface. Is it possible to do something similar in FOG?

    I also thought about using the FOG Client to change the machine name, but then it would be necessary to be logged in shortly after the imaging process to work, right? And to do this login, a local user would be needed too, would not it? (I do not want to create a local user just for this).

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes you can do this in a fog post install script. That is how I do it in my company. I don’t use fog to rename the computers, because our computer names are calculated based on where the image is deploying, what image type is used and then the asset tag is appended to the end of the that other prefix info. So it is possible to do.

    If you have found a solution then great, if not let me know and I will show you how it can be done.



  • I think this solution would solve my problem in the way I seeks, but it was not posted way back then: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/1132/hostname-change-joining-domain-before-sysprep-runs-xp-win7
