Download: Computer Account Prestaging Tool

This tool will allow you to pre-stage managed computers into the WolfTech AD OU of your choice (assuming you have the necessary permissions to the OU etc.) for use with RIS from an Excel spreadsheet. The VB Script (PrestagRISClnt.vbs) provided in the link above is a modified version of a script provided by Microsoft as part of their Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit in the file found here:

Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit

The script has been modified to accept one additional argument - a container (OU) of your choice to stage the computers. The script, as provided by Microsoft, will only stage the computers into the default 'Computers' AD group. The download in the link below includes a sample excel file containing a list of computers & a batch file that will run the script with the necessary arguments.
