    Documentation: "In the Hostname field, specify a hostname to be assigned to Mac computers. To assign a unique hostname to each individual Mac, you can use a task sequence variable as a value. For example, you may use the %OSDComputerName% built-in variable. Before using the variable here, you must assign it to a device collection or to individual Mac resources. If you leave the value of the variable blank, a Mac user will be prompted to enter a hostname when the step is executed on a Mac. If you assign a value, it will be used to set the Mac's hostname"

    I've followed the instruction and set "%OSDComputerName%" as Hostname. This didn't work, as no prompt came up, the TS failed.

    Next, using the "Set Variables" I've tried to set the OSDComputerName to an empty value. Didn't work either.

    My last hope was the "Device Collection", where I've added an "Collection Variable". This didn't work also.
