With other deployment products, I have been able to run a script during the provisioning process and have the result returned to the process.
Essentially what I need to do is --
- Inject a script onto the PC being imaged
- Execute the script which will query WMI for a variable such as the Serial Number
- Return that variable to LD
- Copy the variable or the value to a file on the PC being image, such as the "unattend.xml"
My immeditate need is to capture the Serial Number and use it in the unattend.xml for the PC name.
Is anyone doing something similar that you can share?
I am deploying large numbers of systems that have never been in LD so there is database data for them. There is no way I can expect anyone to write spreadsheets or anything like that to handle what should be a very simple automated process.
