Does MDT save Domain and Network settings?

Tom Spooner 21 Reputation points

I am very new to the tech field and will be tasked with setting up ~20 new workstations under the company domain. Each will need to be set with a static IP address as well. Is there a way to set these up automatically? I would like if they can automatically join the domain and assign themselves an IP address without using DHCP since everything on our network is set statically. For instance, if I set up one workstation, it would automatically join our domain and assign itself an IP address of, then the next workstation will join the domain and assign itself and so on.

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft MECM Q&A forum.

    Yes, we could set static IP addresses using customsettings.ini or MDT database etc. in MDT. For more detailed steps, please refer to:
