Windows Server 2012 - renaming a workstation

Hi all,

With one of my workstations, I've changed the computer description and name under System Properties - Computer Name:

But it doesn't seem to be updating the computer name in Windows Server 2012 Essentials under Devices. How can i do this?

Thanks in advance.

Uninstall and reinstall the client connector. Essentials doesn't read names from AD, so the name it had when the connector was installed is the name that appears in the dashboard.
