    NetBIOS name is also called as computer name and hostname so simply change the computer name that will be your NETBIOS name.



    Thanks

        Hello Mr. Simon,

        I replied to the question he asked. He didnt asked me the effects and it all depends on which os he is going to do. It can be server os or client OS and scnario differs.

        Thanks

            Amazing how the question changes as the thread progresses.

            You just need to change the computer name (I assume on a workstation).

            Right click 'my computer' > properties > computer name > change > "computer name".
            If you are in a domain, I suggest you leave the domain, rename, then rejoin.

            Warning: Before leaving the domain make sure you know the local admin password.
