Error description

  • TPMfOSd 7.1.1.4 and TPMfI 7.1.1.4
    deploying Windows 7
    
    
    In order to create a randomized name for the target systems, we
    use "Target host name to set" = * in the Target's tab.
    
    It works, but generates a warning message:
    <WRN> Computer name (*) contains a special character (*)
    :Deployment may fail.
    
    As a result, the green screen is not displayed on the target
    at the end of the deployment.
