Auto naming failing since I started using capture

Recommended Posts


I am using smart deploy to capture my images only and I am uploading the completed .wim directly to wds. Since I have started using smart deploy my computers are no longer auto naming themselves. I am pre-staging the computers in ADUC and imputing the GUID for the machine. I also have an unattended answer file set with the image. This problem does no occur with an image that I built the traditional way.

How can I reolve this?

When capturing an image with SmartDeploy Sysprep is not run as this is taken care of behind the scenes at deployment time. In order to use a WIM created with SmartDeploy you would need to Sysprep the virtual machine prior to shutdown and capture.
