MDT 2010 Automatically Move Computers to the Right OU

When I deploy client computers you have always 2 client Tasks. One for Laptops and one for Desktops.
I already blogd about joing domain. Jou can find it here. http://www.wardvissers.nl/2009/12/20/mdt-2010-join-domain/.

I had a issue joining the computers to the right ou for the two tasks.

I found a great solution to fix it.

Here is how I did it.

Open the right Task Sequence. I my case it was laptop.

This is de default setting

Change this to: Gather local data and proces rules. Fill at Rules files customsettings.ini in.

Open Customsettings.ini

Change the following

[Settings]
Priority=Default
Properties=MyCustomProperty

to

[Settings]
Priority=TaskSequenceID, Default
Properties=MyCustomProperty

Add the following text.

[LAPTOP]
MachineObjectOU=ou=laptops,ou=ward,dc=wardvissers,dc=local

You can do this also for Desktops.

When you deploy a new computer the computer is now in the right OU.  I love MDT Open-mouthed smile
