We are trying to deploy a bunch of new Windows 7 (and some old XP) machines using MDT2010 and MDT2012.
Because IE is set to "automatically detect proxy settings", it gets the settings from the proxy.pac/wpad.dat defined in the DHCP server.
The problem is that during deployment, the machine is not on the domain, so no authentication to the WebMarshal server is possible, so all internet-based operations fail unless someone "hands-on" fills in the authentication dialog box.
How can I do one of the following?
- Disable auto proxy configuration for XP before the application installations begin
- Have the proxy.pac/wpad.dat files bypass the proxy based on something identifiable on the machine (host name would do, but iirc that's not available to PAC, but any other variable I can set from MDT would do too)
- Configure WebMarshal to bypass authentication for particular a computer name
