When enrolling devices through Autopilot, you can create an Autopilot deployment profile and configure the “Apply device name template” setting to create a device name for Windows 10 1809 and higher devices at initial startup.

We’ve discovered a bug in this setting with Windows 10 1809 where using a prefix with the %RAND:x% macro does not work to apply a device name, if the total of the prefix and macro adds up to 15 or more characters.

 

As a work around you should ensure that you enter 14 characters or less overall when using device name templates for your Autopilot device enrollment. We'll update this post when a fix is in!
