We're having 30 HP T630 Thin Clients for which we've created a master image with TV host embedded with a fixed password in it.
The ID is perfectly changed on the cloned Thin Client so that's good. But, the fixed password is also changed. The HP Cloning software (Thin State/capture) uses SysPrep….
How to prevent changed passwords in the cloned TV hosts?

Cloning TeamViewer doesn't work very well.
The best method is to have TeamViewer install during the first boot. Using an msi package is supported for Corporate license subscribers.
Another option is to export the registry settings from a working computer and script the import after waking up a clone that already has TeamViewer installed.
From the source computer > Extras > Options > Advanced > (scroll to bottom) Export options to a *.reg file
Place the .reg file some place accessible by your cloned computers (like C:\TeamViewer_Settings.reg) and have your clones run the following commands during their first boot.
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\reg.exe import "C:\TeamViewer_Settings.reg" "C:\Program Files (x86)\TeamViewer\TeamViewer.exe" --ReloadSettings
These commands are assuming you are running 64bit Windows. Remember to test thoroughly!
Thanks for your reply! We've done some testing with exporting settings from the master image and importing them on the clone, but without luck. The TV password isn't the same on the cloned device...
We will do some further investigation and testing.

We've ended up with editing all of the TV host settings on the 30 Thin Clients after imaging...
We had to do some other tasks on the Thin Clients like setting computer names, etc, so we stopped furthur investigation on how to get TV right/with the same password in the image.
