I think you have to specify the computer name after the command like so:

newsid /a <computername>

without the <>, otherwise it will ask you before you continue, see below a vb script that will make it automatically for you:

Also see: http://www.msfn.org/board/Assigning-newsid-compute-t114386.html for ideas on naming convention of the machines, you can use the serial number and the date of the machine.
Dim strMachineName = "SomeSortofNamingConvention"
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objScriptExec = objShell.Exec("newsid /a " & strMachineName)
