RIS autoincrement number

Recommended Posts

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.
