Hi all,

I've recently installed a RIS on Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition.
The problem that I'm facing is that the RIS server doesn't increment my computer number. So every time I install a new pc, it has the same name as I configured it into Remote Installation Services Properties.

Is there a way that I can enter manually the computer number when RIS starts the installation?
My ristndrd.sif file looks like this:

floppyless = "1"
msdosinitiated = "1"
OriTyp = "4"
LocalSourceOnCD = 1

OsLoadOptions = "/noguiboot /fastdetect"
SetupSourceDevice = "\Device\LanmanRedirector\%SERVERNAME%\RemInst\%INSTALLPATH%"

OemPreinstall = yes
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
OemPnpDriversPath = \Drivers\A01;\Drivers\C01;\Drivers\N01;\Drivers\V01
FileSystem = LeaveAlone
ExtendOEMPartition = 0
TargetPath = \WINDOWS
OemSkipEula = yes
LegacyNIC = 1
UnattendMode = "ReadOnly"
OemSkipEula = yes

OrgName = "%ORGNAME%"
ComputerName = %MACHINENAME%
ProductID = "win-serial"

OemSkipWelcome = 1
OemSkipRegional = 1
TimeZone = %TIMEZONE%
AdminPassword = "password"

CountryCode = 40
AreaCode = 268

InputLocale = 0409:00000409
SystemLocale = 0409
UserLocale = ”0409

BitsPerPel = 16
XResolution = 800
YResolution = 600
VRefresh = 60



JoinDomain = RO
MachineObjectOU = "%MACHINEOU%"
CreateComputerAccountInDomain = Yes
DoOldStyleDomainJoin = Yes

Repartition = Yes
UseWholeDisk = Yes

Description ="Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2"
Help ="Automatically installs Microsoft Windows XP Professional without prompting the user for input."
LaunchFile = "%INSTALLPATH%\%MACHINETYPE%\templates\startrom.com"
ImageType =Flat
Version="5.1 (2600)"

I saw that in ?:\RemoteInstall\OSChooser\English is a file called custom.osc, but I don't know how to add this file into RIS setup process.

Did anybody encountered this issue?

Thanks in advance.
