Hi turbot_yu,

Netdom will do this from the CLI

netdom renamecomputer oldcomputername /newname:newcomputername

This does not require a restart

Hope that helps,

Yes it requires a restart (you can set the delay for as long as you like)

The mechanism?  It changes the name!

Check the link and it should explain it a little better
