MDT 2013 Win 8.1 deployment not joining domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Pretty straight forward scenario

    Used the Sysprep and Capture task sequence to capture a Win 8.1 gold image. When I deploy it - it works, except it does not get the computer name I type in during deployment (it ends up with the name of the original image) and it does not join the domain (it stays in the original workgroup). Time zone works, activation works, installed apps work - just computer name and domain join not working. I change computer name and join domain manually after, but it should work. I used to work with my old Win 7 image. Then I upgraded to MDT 2013 and the new Deployment Kit.

    What log should i be looking in and what should i be looking for in those logs.

    I Created the CustomSettings.ini as follows (i removed the identifying names and such):

    Properties=MyCustomProperty

    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipTaskSequence=YES
    TaskSequenceID=1
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=YES
    AdminPassword=Passw0rd
    SkipProductKey=YES
    ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx

    SkipBitLocker=YES
    SkipTimeZone=YES
    SkipLocaleSelection=YES
    KeyboardLocale=en-US
    UserLocale=en-US
    UILanguage=en-US

    SkipUserData=NO

    SkipComputerName=NO

    SkipSummary=YES
    DeploymentType=REFRESH
    TimeZoneName=Central Standard Time
    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    JoinDomain=XXX

    DomainAdmin=admin
    DomainAdminDomain=XXX
    DomainAdminPassword=SecurePassword
