Friday, July 06, 2012 9:29 AMI've prepared a task sequence for a New Computer.
On the computerpage of the Wizard I enter a Computername, domainname etc.
At the end, when the task has been run, and a new machine has been created, it didn't take any of these.
So on initial startup, when it asks for a (new) username, it also asks for a computername. The machine is added to WORKGROUP.
I've checked the BDD.log, here I find that all items specified from the Wizard are added, like OSDComputername, JoinDomain, OSDNetworkJoinType=0 etc.
Further down the BDD.log, when reading the unattend.xml from the deploymentshare, I see that other variables (not specified in the unattend.xml) remain empty, like Computernamen, JoinWorkgroup etc.
Then the DriverGroup001 variable, from the tasksequence is resolved, and all drivers are injected/loaded/copied successfully.
Then, still from the BDD.log, I can see that setup.exe is run, successfully.
Finally the unattend.xml is 'processed' again (with the same result) from c:\minint....
Nowhere I see any mention of using the variables specified from the Wizard, like OSDComputername etc. There is also no netsetup.log on the resulting machine.
I must have missed something trivial, any ideas???

OK, issue resolved.
When moving from one installation to another I copied an unattend.xml into my new tasksequence which was apparently lacking some of the original information.
After I replaced it with a copy of the original (luckily backup up when I created the TS), and added my additions, all issues, as mentioned in my initial question, where resolved.
