Here;s my scenario and why, if possible, I would like to change the printer's host name. My workplace is using a xerox phaser860dp in a lab enviornment. I let the DHCP server assign the printer an ip address and then setup a reservation. However, the reservation name (even after I assigned it a descriptive name) reverted to some non-descript name (which would be akin to miscellaneous unless you went into the reservation's properties and checked out the description.) At this point the reservation was active. However, after I changed the reservation name back to a more descriptive name, the reservation went inactive. And this non-descript name is the host name for the printer per the printer config info. I didn't see a way via the printer's control panel or driver to change this name. Do I have to reinstall the printer or am I missing something. Your help is greatly appreciated.
