JSI Tip 4656. Sysprep changes the case of the ComputerName entry to uppercase?

When you use the Sysprep tool to deploy computers, the ComputerName from the Sysprep.inf file is always converted to uppercase when mini-setup finishes.

To workaround this problem:

1. Use the registry editor to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters.

2. Change the data values in the Hostname and NV Hostname strings to lowercase.

3. If Hostname is present at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DNSRegisteredAdapters, change it also.

4. Exit the Registry Editor.
