The best way to input a computer name during the task sequence is by using SCCM task sequence orchestrator ‘sccmtspsi’.
SOE / MOE engineers have for years used the orchestrator not just to set device names but to select applications, collection memberships, Active directory groups, primary users and even perform USMT operations and more.

Sccmtspsi orchestrator does the following.


  • Gives the task sequence operator an opportunity to input a computer name/device name before the task sequence starts.
  • Identifies if the device is already in the SCCM database; if it is sccmtspsi pre-populates the field with the device name.
  • Check the local file system. If the device name can be found via the local file system, registry etc sccmtspsi auto-completes the device name field.
  • Sccmtspsi also check to see if another device with the same name is active in the environment (different physical address and/or different GUID) and warns the task sequence operator (Who can then choose to override)
  • More features listed below.

The only tool you’ll ever need for streamlining your operating system deployments

Listed below are some of the features that would help your organisation upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 seamlessly.

Input system name

Automatically identify or input computer name by exploring the file system or querying the SCCM database.

Office suite application

Select your preferred office suite application from a list of office suite SCCM applications that are made available for the realm.

Advanced email notification

Select options to notify operator and/or administrator at login, build start and build completion.

Task sequence selection

Select from multiple task sequence deployments that are targeting the machine; all from within a single user interface.

SCCM application

Select multiple SCCM applications from a list of SCCM applications. Select from multiple SCCM applications marked to be displayed for the chosen realm.

DNS and SCCM conflict

sccmtspsi can check DNS entry conflicts and duplicate SCCM objects thereby reducing build failures and increases SOE health.

Unlock bitlocker

Bitlocked drives can be unlocked automatically from active directory, MBAM, password key or using a password.

SCCM collections

Add machine to one or more SCCM collections from a list of available SCCM collections. sccmtspsi broker adds the computer into these SCCM collections.

Content availability check

Validates content availability and lists all applications, packages and other items that are not available in the distribution points.

Select operating system

Select a operating system image or package that is available within the selected task sequence.

Active directory groups

Add machine to one or more active directory groups from a list of available active directory groups for the realm.

18 extension attributes

Extension attributes provide an SCCM administrator with the ability to plot multiple paths for each of their task sequence deployments.

User data migration

The user state migration process just got a whole lot easier. Capture and restore files from a good old Windows XP device to a new and powerful Windows 10 device using hardlink, USB or network options.

Primary users

Select one or more primary users for the device from the sccmtspsi task sequence user interface.

System decommission

sccmtspsi helps manage asset life cycle by helping SCCM administrators to format system drives, delete AD machine objects and SCCM device objects.
