Deployment ignoring custom values in CustomSettings.ini

    Question

  • I'm trying to use the CustomSettings.ini to dictate which OU my machines add themselves to when joining the domain (laptop, desktop, server etc). However MDT seems to be ignoring everything outside of the [Default] attribute and only applying the settings defined there - so it is joining the domain, but the computer objects are landing in the default Computers OU.
    Domain joining is not specified in my Bootstrap.ini or in the unattended.xml. MDT is also not adding my prefix value for "SiteID" to the OSDComputerName.

    My CS.ini is structured as follows:

    Priority=ByLaptopType,ByDesktopType,ByVMType,ByServerType,Default
    Properties=

    SiteID,Type
          
    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=YES
    SkipProductKey=YES
    SkipComputerBackup=YES
    SkipApplications=NO

    OSDComputerName=%SiteID%%Type%%SERIALNUMBER%

    SKIPCOMPUTERNAME=NO
    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    DomainAdmin=mdtsauser
    DomainAdminDomain=mycompany.local
    DomainAdminPassword=somepassword1
    JoinDomain=mycompany.local

    SkipUserData=yes
    SkipComputerBackup=YES
    SkipComputerName=YES
    SkipPackageDisplay=YES
    SkipLocaleSelection=YES
    UserLocale=en-AU
    UILanguage=en-AU

    SkipBitLocker=YES
    SkipSummary=YES

    SLShare=\\mdt\mdtshare$\logs
    SLShareDynamicLogging=\\mdt\mdtshare$

    [ByLaptopType]
    Subsection=Laptop-%IsLaptop%

    [ByDesktopType]
    Subsection=Desktop-%IsDesktop%

    [ByVMType]
    Subsection=VM-%IsVM%

    [Laptop-True]
    Type=LT
    SKIPCOMPUTERNAME=NO
    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    DomainAdmin=mdtsauser
    DomainAdminDomain=mycompany.local
    DomainAdminPassword=somepassword1
    MachineObjectOU=OU=Laptops,OU=Office,OU=ManagedComputers,DC=mycompany,DC=local
    JoinDomain=mycompany.local

    [Desktop-True]
    Type=OF
    SKIPCOMPUTERNAME=NO
    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    DomainAdmin=mdtsauser
    DomainAdminDomain=mycompany.local
    DomainAdminPassword=somepassword1
    MachineObjectOU=OU=Desktops,OU=office,OU=ManagedComputers,DC=mycompany,DC=local
    JoinDomain=mycompany.local


    [VM-True]
    Type=VM
    SKIPCOMPUTERNAME=NO
    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    DomainAdmin=mdtsauser
    DomainAdminDomain=mycompany.local
    DomainAdminPassword=somepassword1
    MachineObjectOU=OU=VM,OU=VDI,OU=ManagedComputers,DC=mycompany,DC=local
    JoinDomain=mycompany.local

    [LON]
    SiteID=LON

    Any ideas why these settings are not being applied? Thanks
