To make the changes follow the steps below.

- Go to C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\Deployment.
- Open the answer file sysperp or unattened.xml based on the OS you are deploying.
- Delete the content in front of computername. Keep the computer name as blank.

    FullName="GOB"
    OrgName="Your Organization"
