Mass Deployment Licensing, Computer Name, etc. RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I have been using the trail version of WES7SP1 for a week or so now and have had a fairly good experience. I am at a point now where I need to figure out what to do if I want to deploy the same configuration on multiple machines. Before I start buying runtime licenses I need help understanding deployment.

    Here are the steps I have used so far.

    1. Run Target Analyzer.

    2. Import pmq to IEC.

    3. Setup IEC (Added partitions, autologon, EWF, unattended install etc.)

    4. Installed on target machine using answer file.

    5. Installed drivers not found in distribution (Video Card and others)

    The setup seems to work fine. Now I need to make 50 machines identical except product keys and computer names. Is this possible? I have read about sysprep but I don't understand how I can use it if I need to change the product key and computer name. Especially in an unattended install. I would test it but I haven't bought Runtime Licenses so its difficult to try.
