register the com object on your admin server first (read the readme.txt).
Thank you, worked like a charm.
However, here's the readme....doesn't say that ;)
1. create a dir under your management system called PowerTools
2. create a dir under that called Autodomain
3. put the files in this zip in the new PowerTools\autodomain directory
4. open a command prompt and go to the directory - type autodomain5.exe -configure
5. follow the on screen prompts to set your options
6. once finished, check autodomain.ini looks good - change as little as possible.
Getting it into the database.
1. create a new file group in SBAdmin, and set it to "client files"
2. open the new group, do "import file set" on the iset.ini file contained in the PowerTools\autodomain directory
1. assign the autodomain file group to your machine group for new installs, and create a new install package.
I recommend the machine group is set by default to autoboot the machines (the $autoboot$ user is individually assigned) - if you do it like that, the script will take the autoboot user away once everything is set up correctly.
If a line is commented out in autodomain.ini, it means the DEFAULT option will be applied, not that the option is disabled, so
means TO create machines in OU. If you want not to do this, you need to set a value, ie
all the defaults are specified in the INI file, all lines prefixed with ; are ignored.
ah. true. the current version of the readme does (because most people forgot this step). Strangly, the latest version of the script will do the register for you making it kind of moot.
