More thinking, Less DS please.
Finally got Image deploy to work where it would take the computer name in the console!
It starts with Using ghost(Which is crap IMO). Then Using Symantec's built in Capture image job, then deploy. And you have to use 64bit PE because there is a known issue where 32bit PE does not have Firm which causes the unattended.xml to not get copied, and the job would hang and fail after imaging.
So today, more image testing with 32 bit, and throwing out all the great logic we had planned with this product.
Image x -> Script in the correct agent installer(hierarchy) -> Copy local all base sw -> Boot to windows and use unattend.xml to install all software and agent.
Now it's back to:
So the big hurdle. Since Ghost is doing it's thing in the back ground, we have no way to manipulate the agent(It configures to the aprents server the image was captured on). So does this mean in a Hierarchy, we need a 32bit and 64bit image on each NS?
Why do I feel like this is taking a step backward?
