  • Error in Computer name changes

    Hi,
    I have 2 server machines (1) Domain Controller and (2) Exam Server. When I am trying to change the name of my second server, it gives an error.

    It looks like there's a computer account for that computer name already. you need to delete the computer account and then change the name.

          Presumably checking that no other computer in the domain had the same name?

          Curious it didn't give you the opportunity to "use existing computer account"
