Hi All, I'm using a Azure Hybrid AD configuration and trying to rename computers with the following naming convention but it doesn't work. I created a configuration profile, Domain Join and specified the computer name Prefix as shown here. "XX-%SERIAL%" The "XX-" alone works fine but each time I add "%SERIAL" it never work. thoughts?

    @Bonus12 Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    For hybrid Azure AD joined devices, we can only specific the prefix for the device name and other 15 characters are randomly generated. There is no method to specific the device name as "xx-%SERIAL%". User's image

    Hope it will clarify something.
