Hi all, first of all, I didn't know where else to post this.
I remember from classes that I took, there was a way to erase the identity of a pc after (or was it before) it is cloned. I need to set up 59 PC's (that all have the same hardware). They all will have the same software setup. I remember there is a way of erasing a PC's name and other attributes that identify it. If anyone can remember, I'd appreciate a little help, thanks.

Yeah, you need to remove the SID, which is essentially what that tool does :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
