For some time now, I have had the _SMSTSORGNAME variable in CustomSettings.ini set to “DXter’s Deployment Solution” as a display name during deployments in my home environments. However, since I do a lot of installations in my home environments, sometimes I need to know what I am actually deploying for the moment during the installation process.
One of the core strengths of MDT 2010 is its rich set of rules and variables. MDT has a lot of variables by default and one of them is %TaskSequenceName% which is a dynamic value of the name of the task sequence that is currently running.
So I thought that I should try to edit my CustomSettings.ini to tell _SMSTSORGNAME to set its value dynamic during installation based on the name of the current task sequence!
So all I hade to do was to change one line in DeploymentShare\Control\CustomSettings.ini to this:
That’s it! Now lets try if it works in real life!
I select my Windows 7 Enterprise x64 task sequence that also does an online installation of the Swedish language pack.
It works like a charm! The organization name in MDT during the installation is now the name of my selected task sequence!
