OSDComputerName = MDT DB Computer Description RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a new working MDT 2013 install and would like to have the computer named to the value of the Database > Computers > Computer > Description field.

    In our previous MDT2010 installation we had imported the name into this Description field as well as OSDComputerName field, but would prefer it if we did not have to edit the OSDComputerName field at all (less human error when we have to manually add computers to the DB).

    I have spent a number of hours searching, but have not found this exact request. I have used OSDComputerName=%SerialNumber% in CustomSettings.INI, as well as specifying OSDComputerName on the computer in the DB of which both work fine, but cannot find the variable for this elusive Description field!

    Please can anyone give me some suggestions!
