Adding workstations to the domain during the imaging procces

we are moving to a domain enviroment and want to modify our existing imaging format to automatically join the workstation to the domain. At present the name of the computer is done by scripting an edit of the image safe data and have the zen agent change it.

when is it preferable to auto add the workstation to the domain?

1. during the sysprep mini install using the unattended.xml file
2. after the the mini setup and before the zen preagent install
3. after the zen preagent install
4. Can you edit the image safe data to have it prform this

Re: Adding workstations to the domain during the imaging pro

we decided to try
running the image scripts as before which renamed the computer using the image safe data and after zen agent is installed and computer reboots, runs another scripted that adds the pc to the domain

Re: Adding workstations to the domain during the imaging pro

Hi

Did it work for you?
Where do you get your workstation name from?
I've tried this for my self, but in my case ZENworks never renamed my devices, so I went another way.

Thanks.

Re: Adding workstations to the domain during the imaging pro

Yes it seems to work

We have a script that
it reads the image safe data and if the name is not there it wait for user input to add the name. then it images the machine. at reboot it runs the mini setup and install the preagent which rename the pc according to the image safe data it reboots then joins the machine to the domain.

Re: Adding workstations to the domain during the imaging pro

Okay, after we moved from imaging in zen 7 ón Linux to zen 11 ón Windows our auto naming didn't work. But I hope I Can get it back running when we move to only running the 11 agent so I Can use the image safe data 🙂
