How to make Dell Service Tag the computer name?

Recommended Posts

When creating a custom answer file I specify that the new computer name should be created by reading the WMI property. This is the query is uses: SELECT SMBIOSAssetTag FROM Win32_SystemEnclosure

However, one the image completes, it has been adding a 'D' to the service tag. I.e. Service Tag is ABC1234 it will turn it into DABC1234

What can be done to resolve this?

In order to pull the Dell Service tag for naming the computers please perform the following:

· Boot to your boot environment (SmartPE)

· Click “Deploy an image”

· Click “Advanced”

· Click “Identification” Tab

· Click “User the following naming method”

· Select “Read from WMI property”

· Delete the whole default SMBIOSAssetTag string and add the following instead: SELECT SerialNumber FROM Win32_SystemEnclosure
