Hi
I get the following error when renaming a workstation:
"the following error occurred attempting to rename the computer to NEWNAME:
The user name could not be found"
This happens after I enter the correct administrator login details when
asked by the system to supply authentication for an account that has
permission to rename the computer. I disconnected network shares before
trying to rename.

Any ideas? I can't find anything elsewhere. Any help greatly appreciated
Regards
Terry
