Name Computers automatically with NetSUS, NetRestore and others

If you’ve moved away from an OS X-based infrastructure and towards Linux, you may be familiar with NetSUS, which is a linux-based appliance that can be used to NetBoot Macs.  This is a great solution if you are trying to move towards virtualized and/or non-OS X servers.  One problem is that if you want to ditch other free deployment solutions such as DeployStudio, naming machines automatically can become a real chore.

Enter MacNamer.  It is a nifty project from Graham Gilbert to solve this problem for a variety of different workflows and tools.  Check out the details over at his blog.
