Duplicate Name Exist on Network - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Do you have your windows xp disk with you? On it is the windows support tools install it. It will install in programs/support tools
Then create a text file and copy and paste the following in it
Code:
netdom renamecomputer machine
/newname: new_computername /userd:
domainname \ administrator_id /passwordd:* /usero: local_admin
/passwordo:* /reboot: seconds before automatic reboot

save it as a cmd file then just edit it and fill in the fields where it applies.
The asterisk symbol (*) is the value that is connected to the /passwordd: and /passwordo: parameters and specifies thatthe password should be typed with hiddencharacters when the command is submitted.

3. Add back onto domain.

I will give that a shot next time I'm there...but what is that command anyways? Isn't it just the same thing as changing your computer name but just using commands instead of gui?
