Creating unique identifiers for new devices 

To create unique identifiers for new devices, use a Public variable that is based on the MAC address of the target device as shown below:

Variable (Database) = macAddress Value = Computer.Network."NIC Address"
Variable (String) = Prefix Value = UT (User value like location - Optional)
Variable (String) = Suffix Value = XP (User value like OS - Optional)
Variable (String) = ComputerName Value = %Prefix%%MACaddr%%Suffix%

Next, use the ComputerName variable in your sysprep.inf or unattend.txt files to uniquely identify the new device, as shown in the following code sample:

[UserData]

ProductKey=%ProductKey%

FullName="Engineering"

OrgName="LANDesk"

ComputerName=%ComputerName%
