I am trying to do something that might not be possible in VCL, but maybe
someone out there has an idea how I could make an easy modification to
We use VMware to provision our images on demand. We don't necessarily
need to sysprep them - the VMs are pretty much ready to go after
loading. Except for two things:
* We need to rename the computer
* We need to join the computer to our domain
I have a script that can do both things, but it doesn't seem to work
unless we reboot after each command. I have been able to get one reboot
to happen by setting the imagemeta.postoption = 'reboot'.
So my questions are:
1) Is it possible to get two reboots? i.e. somehow have my script do a
reboot and have VCL pick up where it left off?
2) Is there already some way built into VCL to do what I want? I see a
script in the Sysprep folder called set_computer_name.vbs but I believe
this only gets called during Image Capture. We don't know what we want
to name the computer until we are provisioning it for the reservation.
Please let me know if I am not explaining things coherently.
