  • in or out of a domain?
  • On the Domain
    • you may need to use netdom and run the script on a dc not the workstation

  • After installing the Server admin tools on my desktop, I was able to run "netdom.exe renamecomputer TESTPC /newname:TestPC2 /userd:Domaim\Username /passwordd:password /force /reboot:120" This allows me to run the command from my desktop but how would I do that in a kace script.
    Does the Kace script run locally on the desktop when it is pushed?
    • since the tools are on your machine you target your machine with the script and it carries out the command in the domain for you.

directory = c:\windows\system32
file = cmd.exe
parameters = /c WMIC ComputerSystem where Name="COMPUTER-NAME" call Rename Name=NewName

It's probably NOT a good idea to use your email address as a username on a public forum. Unless you *enjoy* inviting spammers, of course... :-)
