    Question about MDT and GPO Packages

    First, I apologise for any formatting issues as I'm on mobile.

    With SCM being abandoned by Microsoft, is there an easy alternative to building a GPO package for Windows 10 deployment?

    Questions regarding sysprep and capture in MDT

    I have a question regarding the sysprep and capture function in MDT 2013.

    I have done a sysprep & capture on a Windows 10x64 machine with software and drivers included using MDT.

    So the next step I did was to deploy the captured .iso file onto a new machine which had the usual configuration steps including setting up the computer name, timezone and keyboard layout etc and everything was start up fine and all the software and drivers were also configured & installed properly.

    However, the issue is that machine's SID and computer name were completely the same as the one I ran the sysprep & capture on. Was this supposed to be like this? Because I did some research and a sysprep is supposed to change the SID as it is treated as a new machine. Also, I did configure a new computer name for the machine during the deployment setup but I have no idea why its the same name as the other machine.
    I would appreciate any answers given. Thank you.

    Question about MDT and GPO Packages

    Server 2003 GPO questions

    I solved my problem!
    My first issue was the installation files that weren't running. I fixed this by enabling windows installer through the "allow select windows applications to run" option in the GPO. My second issue was turning off the GPO on the fly. Unfortunately, there is no option within the GPO editor that allows for this. However, I did create a .bat file which I can run that will insert specific registry key values that will render the GPO ineffective. I also created a "re-enable GPO" .bat file that I run after I am through making the changes, this will bring the GPO back up.
    Thanks so much for your help Batou1986! *Toast :toast:
