Machine Name Pattern Starting at "01"

Hello All -

I am wanting to create a naming scheme that looks like "Machine01", "Machine02", "Machine03", etc. (with a leading zero in front of any single digit numbers).

Is the correct pattern: Machine{01}?  Will Acronis add a leading zero here?

I saw Machine{0}{0,10} as an example in the help file, but I am not wanting to start at "00" since I'm labeling machines for a specific cart location, and our carts start at 01, not 00.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I haven't done naming very much, but I believe it would be:

Machine{01,10}

First one is the start (01) and the second one is the count (10) would count off 10 machines starting from 01 so however many you plan to deploy, just change 10 to that number instead. 

http://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/ASD5/#13504.html

{start,count}

Generates count consecutive numbers starting with start.

For example, the pattern {1,5} generates the names 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Similarly, the pattern {8,5} generates the names 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.

Make sure that the value of count is big enough. If the number of target machines exceeds count, deployment to the remaining machines will fail.

You can use two or more of these wildcards. See examples later in this section.
