As of the week of August 27, you can use a template to control how the machine will be automatically named. So not exactly static, but gets you away from total random. From the discussion, sounds like not total random was good enough for some, but not all, so I will switch this back to “noted”.
more detail about what we released in August:
When you create an autopilot deployment profile, you can designate a name, which must be 15 characters or less, and can contain letters, numbers, and hyphens. Names can’t be all numbers. Use the SERIAL macro to add a hardware-specific serial number. Alternatively, use the RAND:x macro to add a random string of numbers, where x equals the number of digits to add.
It’s only available with the Windows Insider build for now.
Hello Microsoft Windows Autopilot team,
Looks like this request is taken back seat. Please understand, we enterprise use unique computer name and there are processes tied to computer name which will take decades to redesign without the name and nothing but slows down autopilot consumption.
Kindly provide an option to set unique computer name during autopilot (this is the user voice with third highiest voting as of today)
@Friends having similer requirement, Please upvote
We have similar requirement as @Dieter stated here.
Is this not covers post / update as well?
