If I reimage a machine, it does not take on the same computer name as the source image. Is this by design or am i doing something wrong?
what about the SID?
If the sid and computer name will stay intact and my base image is already joined to the domain, I could reimage a machine and when it boots for the first time it would already be on the domain. Meaning I would never even have to visit a machine to reimage it.16. November 2006 at 18:20 #8897karazielMember

That’s by design
The Wyse Imaging System (WISard) keeps some unique data through imaging using a secret partition on the flash.
If you’ve renamed 25000 devices based on roll-out location..you don’t want to have to rename them all just to update the image.
I think you can disable this by changing the push.i2c
c:inetpubftprootrapporttoolssa9v90 (or whatever the HW is)
update the =YES to NO
i believe this will stop it from restoring the name so it should accept whats in the image.

so in theory I will be able to image machines already on domain and once they are done they are ready to logon….16. November 2006 at 21:04 #8900
Why would you want them all to have the same name?
Wouldn’t that cause a DNS conflict?
You are better off writing an automation script for joining the Domain.
You can even toss it as a run once option in the image so that when it boots up the next time it can automatically run and join the domain.16. November 2006 at 23:32 #8902thinkthinMember

Under downloads-Rapport-XPe scripts on this site is a Rapport script to joing the domain. I would agree that it would be better to join the domain after imaging, note the details in the script if you want to use this as a run once command as it takes an extra step to join Xpe terminals with a wite filter.
This is the same as if you are ghosting PC’s – join the domain after the imaging proccess,
