    Computer re-named

    I renamed a computer the other day, for instance from itoff-01 to F9-05 but it didnt seem to go all that well when i rebooted i cud no longer log in, this is locally not on the netwrok, i presume my logon credentials havent been updated? but does anyone know a way i can rectify this without imaging the machine?

    Re: Computer re-named

    So it's standalone, and won't accept your logon?

    Or it won't accept a local user?

    Local administrator logon (not as in group, but the actual administrator login for the machine)?

    Re: Computer re-named

    Well if you can't log on to the machine at all,

    This site might help you:

    http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

    Although if you can still log on to the network
    you should be able to change local user passwords
    as long as that network user has local admin.

    Re: Computer re-named

    it seems to be a problem that occured when changing the computer name. It was changed to F9-05 but still shows Itoff-01 for instance!?

    Re: Computer re-named

    Actually I must say, if you know it's a legit website etc, sometimes it's neccesary to unfilter your access.

    Blacklists suck. One should use Bayesian Filtering with keywords.

    Yikes! :idea:

    Remember kids to always put the HDD at the top of the boot order and lock the BIOS

    But you knew that anyway ...right?
