There was a modification made long ago allowing us to apply variables to the host name in Quick Registration using curly brackets.
This was a tremendously awesome idea. I was going to modify the files myself, however the files in question have since (it’s been 6 years) been completely rewritten. I can see in the Registration class the pretty simply code to modify, however I’m not sure if at that point it is possible to pull things like the serial number from the Inventory class.
Any suggestions? Is this functionality somewhere else that I’ve somehow completely missed? I should also note, I will be unable to install the FOG client on the machines, as per company policy outside of my control.
After applying the image the machines are automatically renamed upon first boot using their serial number–another item I’m not able to change. So, I have computers already set up with the proper host names and I’d very much like their records in FOG to correspond.
