So where I work we use FOG snapins to auto deploy machines. Let me give a run down of our process, and where the issue is.
1. FOG pushes base image to machine
2. SYSPrep process runs, SetupComplete.cmd turns on FOG service
3. Auto logon 1 happens and runs 2 powershell scripts. These set the ENV VARS and renames the machine, Reboot
4. Auto login 2 happens. Machine joins domain, PDQ invoke command runs, cleanup happens, Reboot.
5. Sits are Logon screen.
My problem is in step 4 when the Invoke command runs, the target machine is still considered offline. If I go back and redeploy the package it works fine, just not during the imaging phase. what can I do to give it enough time to see the machine is online?
I have read over Stephens blog about the special OU + Heartbeat. That would require us redoing our imaging process to fit that. As that is not off the table as a consideration, I am curious what my other options could be.
