Automatically generate name using ConfigMgr / MDT

Using ConfigMgr with the MDT integration to deploy computers is quite common these days. It provides a certain level of automation that is quite easy to follow, however a topic that quite often comes up is how to automatically name computers during the deployment of a new client.

There are several ways – prompt the user for a name;

Use the serial number of the client to automatically generate a name;

Use a database to have a sequence number and prefix generate a name;

This was quite heavily developed using several other metrics (type, location etc etc)
