I like a mystery but ...
... only in fiction. Scenario:
- Drop a machine off the domain
- Do a P2V of said machine
- Re-name the virtual machine and re-join domain
- All is well been using the virtual machine for some time now
Old physical machine wiped re-purposed, re-named and installed Windows 7. Join "new" machine to domain. All is well as I continue to install the required software.
The new virtual machine had it's anti-virus uninstalled and a newer version installed - using an administration console. Virtual machine showing in console as new version. Suddenly, or so it seems, the virtual machine is displaying it's old physical name! However, now I see that the old physical machine is showing in the older version console under it's old name. Check virtual machine, sure enough old version of anti-virus! Check event logs - new name listed up to about a week ago then old name listed.
What's going on, how can a machine re-name itself? Any clues anybody?

Is the VM mac address the same?

Or perhaps still has the same SSID?
Although I'd plump for DMcCoys answer.

I'll take a look at both, thanks.
