hasi001 Posted October 20, 2004 Share Posted October 20, 2004 I have a question concerning microsoft's setupmgr.exe tool. I used it to precreate my winnt.sif file. As an option i chose to import computernames from a textfile which results in the following entries in winnt.sif[UserData] ProductKey=.................... FullName="The Solar System" OrgName="Solaris" ComputerName=*[SetupMgr] ComputerName0=Mercury ComputerName1=Venus ComputerName2=Earth ComputerName3=Moon ComputerName4=Mars ComputerName5=Phobosand a second file called winnt.udb:;SetupMgrTag[UniqueIds] Mercury=UserData Venus=UserData Earth=UserData Moon=UserData Mars=UserData Phobos=UserData[Mercury:UserData] ComputerName=Mercury[Venus:UserData] ComputerName=Venus[Earth:UserData] ComputerName=Earth[Moon:UserData] ComputerName=Moon[Mars:UserData] ComputerName=Mars[Phobos:UserData] ComputerName=PhobosTrying to install on a VM the generated Computername always looks the way we know: SOLARIS-1234567 ... so it's autogenerated from the OrgName in winnt.sifSo how does this thing with multiple computernames work. Is it, that this only works for installations from a remote computer's network share but not from CD ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
