7.1 "Apply System Configuration" task failing
In a nutshell, I turn on a brand new computer (unknown to the network), find its hostname (minint-xxxx), and:
Deploy the image, reboot to production, it will eventually stop and ask for a computer name (the default is "PC"). I hit Enter. Eventually it will get to the login screen and I will log in to see that the PC name is still PC. The configuration task calls for the computer name to be %SERIALNUMBER%. The task appears to time out.
Strangely enough, if I deploy the same images to computers that are already known to the network, the configuration task applies normally. Does it have something to do with the temporary name of "minint"?
In Altiris 6.9, when it discovered new computers, it would discover them by serial number, and after a deploy image task, it would reboot to production, reboot another time or two, and eventually it would automatically have that serial number again.
What is going on in 7.1?
PS, the agent is installed in the image.
