    Naming problems with WDS

    Hi,

    I am confused, back after Christmas and need to get a move on...

    I have got my 2008 R2 WDS server working.

    I can PXE boot, and either capture or create images to clients.

    I have a image that when deployed, will join the domain, and place the machine in the correct OU via the WDS Properties and the WDS Unattended.xml

    Happy Days BUT ! !

    The problem is the name ! It creates a generic name when it joins the domain, which is fine for a few machines, but I have 1300 clients and we like to be able to audit them with ease, i.e. how many is in which location etc.

    What I would like is the machine to prompt for a name on the client at some stage when getting deployed ?

    Would I be better looking at using MDT along side this ?

    Computers get moved frequently so using the prestaged option is not really workable.
