  • Use the database integration with MDT, which creates a connection between MAC-Address of the machine and a hostname

  • There is no easy way to programmatically determine what the computername is *supposed* to be when installing a new Operating System from the Old OS on the local machine.

    Instead a better course of action would be to *lookup* the value from a saved table (or database) somewhere. It would be up to you to populate the database/table.
