SCCM: Use CSV file to introduce a new machine to SCCM

 

Most commonly CSV file is used in the following format (optional SMSBIOS GUID is omitted between two commas):

Computer_Name,,MAC_Address

 

We can actually add headers to get it more readable

Name,SMBIOS GUID,MAC Address
Computer_name,,00155D01044C

 

If you are planning to use the new machine in REPLACE scenario with USMT you can create necessary association automatically by adding an old computer name to the CSV. Do not forget to capture user data from that old computer before you try to restore them to the new one! Smile

Name,SMBIOS GUID,MAC Address,Source Computer
New_Computer_name,,00155D01044C,Old_Computer_name

 

 

Note: if you use headers in CSV file do not forget to select the checkbox in Import Wizard:
