"Generate Sysprep configuration file using inventory data" Not Working
After the update to 7.1 sp2 mp1, part of our imaging process has stopped working. To image a new pc (Windows XP), we use a custom sysprep file and a script. After the image has dropped and the drivers have been copied, we prompt for Computer Name and OU. The script edits the sysprep file with the entered content and during mini setup, the PC is named and domained.
To image an existing (managed) PC, we use the Generate Sysprep configuration file using inventory data option. This was working flawless. It was great. We made it mandatory that someone would have to hit F12 to boot to WinPE just incase the job was sent to the wrong PC, but after that nothing had to be done. It would eventually end up at the login prompt, named and domained and ready.
Now domaining is hit or miss and the name is the name in the local sysprep file instead of using the info for that PC in the inventory. I have managed to get domaining to work more often, but the name is always wrong.
After the update, our custom sysprep file was gone, so I replaced it. The sysprep file that is being used for the Generate Sysprep configuration file using inventory data option looks fine as far as I can tell.
I will add that this update really messed up our system. We had to rebuild all our site servers to get PXE booting and imaging to work.
Any ideas, comments, information, would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure what to look for to make this work again.
