If you are one of those who really don’t like using the serial number of the computer itself as computer name, a classic alternative is to manually set counting serial numbers. Starting at 01 or 001 and counting upwards. If you’re not using the database, there’s no built in feature for this in MDT. Here’s a small script that takes care of that. Just add the script in your MDT Task Sequence. Preferably after the Windows installation and before the application installation to avoid problems. If you want to create different computer names based on location. You can create one script for every site and add it using this guide. Just remember if you export your deploymentsolution to a CD/DVD, the script won’t work since the installation media is not rewritable. Network share or USB works perfectly fine.

Download CompRename.txt and rename it to .vbs
