Sysprep in Windows 7 -JoinDomain not working!

  1. I'm running the Sysprep that came with Windows 7 Pro and have assembled a small sysprep.inf file to give it the basic commands and credentials we need here. I have used the JoinDomain command and given all the credentials, but when I make the image and create new PCs from it (we are using PING, not Ghost) all the PCs are joined to a WORKGROUP of the same name as the domain i asked it to join!

    Any ideas?

    Have you made up script to run?

    if not exist c:\sysprep\sysprep.inf goto error
    @cscript SetComputerName.vbs //nologo

    XML Answer File and Windows SIM

    Newer versions of Sysprep as included with Windows Vista and Windows 7 support an XML based Answer File. The best way to create this is through using the Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) which by automating the process helps to reduce human error. It can be downloaded as part of the Windows Automated Installation Toolkit (Windows AIK) from the Microsoft Download Center.
