  • Hi yusrij,

    I was able to obtain the source files for the OSD customizer, but I have not been successful at getting the machine to domain join (exit code 1212 (The format of the specified domain name is invalid.).

    I was wondering if you were able to get it working in your environment, and if so, would you be willing to share your OSDSettings.ini file with me (redacted as needed, of course)?

    TIA,
    Paul

  • on a hunch, I re-ran the DIA wizard and chose the option to not join a domain (leaving it at workgroup) and auto-generate the computer name, thinking that maybe the settings in the resulting unattend.xml file were not being replaced by the variables generated by the OSDSettings.ini file. After testing 4 different OU's, I found the everything is now working. Here is the format I used in my OSDSettings.ini file (I'm providing two examples to show how to structure the setting).

    Hopefully this will save someone else some head scratching. :)
