    Zero Touch MDT SCCM

    hi,

    I am running System Center 2007 SP2 R2 / MDT 2010.

    and i can't for the life of me get the deployment process to pick up the computer name from sccm,

    I have imported the PC via computer association / import computer information and entered GUID/MAC/Machine Name.

    PXE booting is working, it PXE boots into WinPE and then prompts for the computer name (MININT-XXXXX) It also exhibits the same behaviour on an existing machine.

    i want it to pick up the association from SCCM.

    i've pressed f8 at that point and checked the SCCM variables.

    OSDComputerName is set to MININT-XXXXX

    _SMSTSMachineName is not set.


    ??????????

    ok so i rebuilt the boot image. set SkipWizard=Yes in sccm_bootstrap.ini

    i also created a new task sequence.


    i suspect that the computer name will now be MININT-XXXX and I'm just not being prompted. but we will see when it finishes. (conviently at the end of man poo vs liverpool!)

    memory make a significant difference on the client, client 1 512mb, client 2: 1500mb started imaging 5 minutes after client 1 and finished 5 minutes before.

    don't even try with 256mb, WinPE/SCCM/MDT crashes. obviously we would never put a machine on someones desk with 256mb, but that is the default ESX vm memory size for XP, and we sometimes use VM's for testing.
