First of all I have to say, well done!! This fix worked so well back in the day. :smiley:
The thought was if the machine name is machine calculable as in our case, why not allow it in 2.0? I can do this today with my script (which I don’t use because I loose FOG functionality). But if the registration process would prepopulate that field based on a formula then all would be right with the world.
Truthfully what we do today is a bit manual but it works. We key in the site OU, D, P, T, or what ever then use a barcode scanner to read the asset tag from the back/bottom of the dells. It does work, but it also the posibility for error and does make extra work.
I understand what you are staying about just importing from a database, but then we have to collect the machine information key/scan it into a database, export and then upload info FOG. This seems like too much work for something that can be done is milliseconds on a computer, and not leave room for the IT tech to make a mistake.
