Customsettings.ini set computer name partially based on model? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We normally set the computer names based only on the serial number.  However, Microsoft Surface tablet serial numbers are numbers only which causes some problems.

    What can we add to the customsettings.ini to make the computer name assigned to any device detected as a Surface Pro be set to SP plus serial numbers (such as SP12345670)?

  • Sure. You will need to add a Model section as outlined in this article: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/mdt-automating-deployments-using-customsettings-ini/ (it even has an example for Surface Pro 3) and then add OSDComputerName property in this section set to something along the lines of SP%SerialNumber%. Lemme know if you need additional guidance - I am on the road right now and am typing this on my phone, so I have to be brief.
