Q

How can I rename a domain computer?

We are moving our NT network over to Active Directory and need to rename all our PCs. Is there a way under an NT network to rename PCs and accounts in the domain prior to migration without visiting every PC?
The best way to remotely rename a domain computer is by using the netdom utility. See the following KB article for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;298593.
