I have created a naming rule with this as my command line:

wsname.exe /N:OKC-$chassis-$serialnum[9] /rcid /user:*******\******* /pass:******* /logfile:c:\name.log

When this job executes after a scripted of install Windows XP SP3 it fails with the following error:

9/16/2009 2:04:39 PM : Call to Rename Computer in Domain returned error : 87
9/16/2009 2:04:39 PM : Refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/netmgmt/netmgmt/network_management_error_codes.asp
9/16/2009 2:04:39 PM : Rename Failed

I checked the website that is referenced and there is no error 87 listed so that helped none. I was able to download wsname.exe from the link provided in the KBOX, and if I run the same command from a prompt it works just fine. I am unable to get back to the website referenced in the KBOX so I couldn't check there for more documentation. Anyone have any ideas?

If it's running successfully from the prompt, and unsuccessfully from another mechanism, the answer is usually "escaping metacharacters". The characters "\",
"-", etc. are sometimes interpreted by a command processor prior to being executed. Try doubling the "\" in your domain user spec.

It does appear that it is an issue with the passing of the user-name, however, doubling the '\' character didn't work. I was able to get it to work though using the user-name format of user@domain.

thanks for the idea though.

The proper escape character for DOS is the caret (^), not the backslash.

Ah...good to know! What characters need to be escaped?
