We too have had the annoying bug where some devices will pick up the hostname of the TC used to create the master image during the imaging process. Based on the thread and soloution posted by tanelorn26 we have created a script to set the host name from the asset tag set in the BIOS.
Edit the _File and Registry template, add a Scipt sub-task. Start in "C:\Windows\xpeagent\" and Run as "System". Paste the code below into the Content section.
for /f "tokens=*" %%i in ('wmic systemenclosure get SMBIOSassettag /value ^|findstr "="') do set asset=%%i set asset=%asset:~15% echo %asset% Hpdmmc set network hostname=%asset%
We now have a template sequecnce that updates the BIOS if needed, deploys an image than runs the task created above to set the hostname.
I hope you find this useful and thanks to tanelorn26 for pointing us in the right direction.
