Using 'FSMAUTIL.exe resetuid' to reset the UID via a script
As per subject line we have a number of machines which was created from an image but the UID was not reset before the final stage of the build. Now we have a number of machine with the same UID. The additional problem is that these users do not have full administrator permission to the machines. We had the problem before for Windows XP machines but then users had administrative permission. I'd rather not apply the fix per machine so need to work out a solution that we can apply on the network.
echo off if exist %windir%\UID3.TXT goto uid-skip
Echo Resetting F-Secure UID
if not exist %windir%\UID3.TXT copy \\server\path\UID3.TXT %windir% /y
echo F-Secure UID has been reset
Echo F-Secure UID has already been set
This is mostly affecting version Workstation 9.31 client and have tried pushing Workstation 11 using both Host Identification Randomly Genterated Global Unique ID and SIMBIOS Global Unique ID on different machines to see if it made a difference but it didn't.
I know the machines that have the same UID from various other solutions that we use so am able to compare what is in PM v11 and WSUS.
Any help would be appreciated.
