Quickest way to get 250 UUID for SCCM OSD
I have 250 student laptops to re-image.
Now with SCCM2007sp2 I need to have the machine name and either the UUID or the MAC.
MAC is no good (as we have found out) as we often change between the Wired NIC or the Wireless NIC and you can only have one MAC so therefore I am thinking the UUID is the best option for us.
As this is 36 characters long it is going to be a long day if I need to type "Wmic csproduct get uuid" in a command prompt for each and every computer and then manually copy that over to a CSV file for import into the SCCM DB.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can do this fast and efficiently. They do have an OS on them but how good would it be if I could boot on a thumb drive with winpe and an auto run script which just copies the guid to a file on the thumb drive along with the current machine name. Then I can just edit the file and import.
The other option is to enable "Unknown Computer" option but I dont think this will not allow me to dictate the machine name which is assigned to each uuid / computer. I dont think - never done it - anyone tried it????
