How to raname a computer name of a Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2009-05-18
I made a ghost copy of one of our servers. I only use this copied server as a test server so I can test my stuff before I put them into production server. I was able to rename it three times before. Whenever I rename it, there was no problem. But now, the same process would not work anymore. Here's how I did them before and worked: First, unplug the cable to the NIC and then change the IP address of the ghosted server. Second, reboot/restart with the cable plugged it. Then go to computer properties and change the computer name. I'm puzzled, this just isn't working anymore???? Any other ideas? Please assist...
