MDT 2013 - Computer name changes after deployment completes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am deploying computers via MDT 2013, and deployments complete successfully. However, the name of the PC (computer name, not the PC name of the AD object) which shows up correctly after deployment completes, changes to something different after the first manual reboot.

  • Problem is, the naming seems to be working fine. The deployment completes, and the computer name is correct. Once the window comes up that deployment was successful, I hit ok, then manually reboot the PC. Once I log back in, the computer name is changed to something else.

  • The unattend would be interesting to look at. Is it the same final name each time?

    Logs are very important. https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Mention any customizations you have made.
