    Hostname not changing after machine has been Provisioned

    Apprentice

      Hi,

       

      So I'm trying to sort out my Unattend file here. After the machine boots into the OS for the first time the machine name is staying the same name as what the base image is called. It's not changing based on the value I have set, %ldHostname%.

       

      What's odd is that if you look at the Unattend.xml file which gets copied to C:\Unattend.xml the section below is actually changing the hostname to what it is in LANDesk. It's just not changing the machine name itself.

       

      <settings pass="specialize">
          <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" processorArchitecture="x86">
            <ComputerName>%ldHostname%</ComputerName>
          </component>
         </settings>

       

       

      I've attached my unattend that I'm using so maybe somebody can sort this out for me.
