Replacing existing server with a new server with the same machine name
Posted on 2003-10-24
In the upcoming months we want to replace one of our servers running NT4 by a new machine running Windows 2000/2003 server.
Since it will also be used as fileserver with all kinds of links to other files, we would like to use the same name for the enw server as for the old server.
My question is:
Would it be possible to change the name of the new server afterwards; I can configure everything upfront, while connected to the network and at a specific date after dismounting the original 'rename' the new server towards the old name ?
