How to prompt for IP settings after Computer Name in LTI? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know this has been asked on CodePlex - http://mdtwizardeditor.codeplex.com/discussions/72810?ProjectName=mdtwizardeditor , but was never responded to. I want to do the same thing. Is there a way to prompt (k.e insert a pane) the user for IP settings for the machine after the ComputerName pane? The reason for this would be for environments that require servers to be setup static, whereas IsLaptop or IsDesktop would bypass it and continue to use DHCP.

    Just learning this cool stuff with MDT. Thanks folks.

  • THe MDT WelcomeWizard contains a dialog that allows you to manually enter Static IP Address information.

    MDT requires networking to be functional *before* you start the main wizard (not the BDDWelcomeWizard), so the Static IP address must be up by then.

  • Hi Nelmedia

    For a IP network settings wizard pane I don't know. But you can configure this in the task sequence. If you have a "server OS" task sequence this make sense.

    In MDT help search for "Configure Apply Network Settings Task Sequence Steps"

    I hope this help. If not please let us know.

  • Thanks again Keith.

    I think I have found a way to change this though in a post install script. After all is said and done with the MDT deployment, I've created a Powershell script to go out and change the IP information and set it to what the Level 1 user has already entered into a XML file in the beginning of the MDT deployment. The script simply reads the file and sets the information, and it runs after the final boot in the Startup.

    Still working on it, but it looks like a solution.

    Great forum guys... thanks again.
