Script to change computer name in domain RRS feed


All replies

  • Hello,

    is it one machine or multiple? Or is it when a machine from an image is installed and you like to rename it? If the last option you have to use sysprep to not only change the name, also some additional information like the SID and some more.

  • You can use the commandline tool NETDOM to do that.  Once you understand the command parameters, it shouldn't be too tough to create a script to do multiple machines (if that's your intent).

  • Ok, It was a machine from image.  They ran ghost walk on it.  Now a few years later we want to rename some of our remote computers about 50
