Name Assistant


Name Assistant makes it easy to bulk-add large numbers of computers to a configured Mac OS X directory services directory, and name and number them appropriately.

Simply copy the application to a network account and set it to launch at login, then login to each computer to be named as that user.

From here you can collect the MAC addresses of all computers and number them, before adding them to the directory.

If you apply the "Name computer based on directory name" option in Workgroup Manager upon reboot the computers will automatically begin using the name set using Name Assistant.
