Q: How do I set the organization name shown in System Center Configuration Manager 2012 during OS installations and software deployments?

A: The organization name displayed during an OS installation and during software deployment and other communications is controlled by the client settings, which are, by default, contained in the Default Client Settings record.

With System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2012, you can create different client settings based on the client collection.To set the organization name, perform the following:

  1. Open the Administration workspace in the SCCM console.
  2. Select Client Settings.
  3. Edit the client settings you have created or the default "Default Client Settings."
  4. Select Computer Agent.
  5. In the box next to the setting labeled Organization name displayed in Software Center, add the organization name, as the screen shot below shows.

  6. Click OK.

The change takes effect immediately.
