Today I am deploying 20 brand new Dell workstations. These will all be for public use at a local library and will be replacing 20 older workstations, which will be moved to another branch of the library, all today and by me alone.
Once deployed, I have a new image for all 40 machines. Immediately after imaging, I need to change the name of each machine to a name that will be determined shortly before deployment.
Is there a script that I could work into a batch file or wmi which can be run from the desktop and will prompt me to enter a new name and workgroup for the machine? Is this the easiest way to change the name and workgroup of 40 machines? I have to visit each desktop anyway to configure Windows SteadyState Disk Protection.
I'm not a stranger to WMI and batch files and I usually wouldn't ask for help writing one, but it's late and I am running out of time and haven't been able to come up with anything that will suffice.
Any other info would be appreciated also. I have been doing this for years, but could always use some help. Thanks in advance.
