Duplicate name exists on the network
Left our largest computer lab imaging last night and come in this morning to find all of the machines displaying this and not joined to the domain.
Fog was set up to change the name of the machines and rejoin them to active directory.
All the machines have the name t3testimage which was the original name of the machine I built the image from. All of the original names for the machines in this room have been removed from active directory as has the name t3testimage. The machine I built the image from had been removed from the domain.
It has worked for me in other labs but I feel I may have missed a step which has caused it to fail.
So my questions are
what did I do wrong?
Is there an easy way to fix it quickly?

renamed and joined them to the domain manually in the end - would still like to know what went wrong.

Did you run sysprep prior to uploading the image to fog?

I usually run the sysprep setup tool thing and tell it to auto generate a random name, along with entering all our licence info etc. for a fully unattended setup. Make sure the fog service and windows support tools are installed, along with the recompiled hostnamechanger.dll for the password encryption. Hopefully after doing all that it should work.
Another thing I've also tripped up on in the past it forgetting to tick the 'join to active directory' on the host from within the FOG management console.

I will give that a try but I dont remember using sysprep the last time I made an image and it worked then.
