  • Change NETBIOS name in Windows 2008 DC

    Hello Guys

    I installed Windows 2008 64-bit domain controller,while running dcpromo ,I choose the default NETBIOS name like"TESTING0". Now, the problem is that all SQL server's and web server configuration are usingg NETBIOS name as "testing", and it is very difficult to change every configuration file.

    Is there any way to change NETBIOS name from "TESTING0" to "TESTING" ?


    Thanks
    Amit

    You can rename the NETBIOS name of a domain using the Domain Rename tools.

    Google "Domain Rename"

      Is it the name of the domain or the name of the computer that needs to be changed?
