New Computers in DS 7.1
I'm intersted in hearing how people deploy images to new computers that aren't known to DS 7.1. I know there's the Predefined Computers route, but I've not had much luck with that so far. And I'm using DS 7.1 and CMS 7.0 which doesn't seem to have the PXE option to respond to predefined computers.
I've come from a DS 6.9 environment where I used to right-click on a computer group, add the computer name and MAC address of the new computer and then drag and drop an image job to it. I would then switch it on (when WOL wasn't working!), it would PXE boot (set first int he boot order), deploy the image, join the domain with the computer name I specified above and start installing the relevant apps via the NS (in a nutshell!). Apart from configuring the BIOS the computer was not switched on until an image was deployed. It all seemed to work well.
I'm a little stuck as to how to achieve the same sort of process in 7.1.
Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks is advanced.
