Ok so in the environment im working in right now, the SCCM site is working towards two different domains, lets call them “Domain A” & “Domain B”. I would like my Task Sequence to join the computers it the right domain depending on what default gateway they have on the network.
I have tried the following, but im afraid neither works:
Select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where DefaultIPGateway=’x.x.x.x’
This will not work because the adapters are stored in an array.
I also found a way to do this use this query:
Select * FROM Win32_IP4RouteTable
WHERE Destination=’0.0.0.0′ AND NextHop=’x.x.x.x’
This queries the routing table, no details about the adapter need to be known. It work’s great just in general and in query’s but it will not work in a Task Sequence.
Looks like i have to install MDT. Thank you for all your answers.
If you have Software Assurance on your WS2012 volume licenses then you can start downloading from the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC). Those customers can start planning their Hyper-V (see the new features) host upgrades … but hold off if you are using System Center because you will need SP1 for System Center 2012 to continue to manage the upgraded hosts and migrated clusters.
It is not on MSDN/TechNet and is not expected there until after the launch on September 4th.@TechNetUK saw me tweeting on the subject and thankfully cleared up the issue:
I know, it’s very disappointing but that’s how the cookie is crumbling on this one. I’d love to have had it sooner so I could get current screenshots for the new WS2012 Hyper-V book.
Windows 8 is also available to VL w/ SA customers on the VLSC site.
SPLA folks, check your pricelists to ensure you are legit to move up first.
