What I'm trying to do is set Sysprep to automatically rename the computer prior to joining the domain. If I put * in the answer file it generates a random name, but I would like to be able to apply a prefix to the name so that we can identify different generations of system images.

eg 2011JUNE-1AS6SDA76 is using the image from June 2011.

If you set the RegisteredOwner & RegisteredOrganization in the "Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" section under oobeSystem, then the auto generated name will be prefixed by the owner then the organisation.
