Automation check in
Automation needs to be able to check in... not just the first time you boot an "unknown machine". Right now, as it is, if you were to boot into Automation on an unknown machine, it checks in with the random name that was generated (ie MININT-XXXXXX). However, say the image fails, and for some reason you have to reboot into Automation. You forgot the MININT name, so you either hope you don't have multiple machines booted into Automation, or that you can still find it based on IP and that the lease on that IP wasn't up between time.
