Hi All,

Can someone teach me how to change computer name using K1000 scripting?

Thank you in advanced!

Are you doing this for one computer or many? What are you naming the computers?

If you want to change it to the serial number, you could use something like this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1683300/rename-pc-to-serial-number

To create a kscript using .vbs: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/how-to-call-a-visual-basic-script

Is this after imaging?  If you have a K2000, you would probably want to use WSname: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/How-to-rename-a-computer-and-join-it-to-a-Windows-domain-Image-Deployment?action=artikel&cat=54&id=763&artlang=en

Your title states description name.  If it is the name you want to change JKnox has given you some sources.  If it is the description you want to change you can do that with "enforce registry settings" scripts

"srvcomment"="Computer Description"

  • Oh, oops. I missed that. Good catch.
    • Not sure on which one they are trying to change. We covered both this way.
