Change host name while they are in Active Directory domain

  • Hello,
    We have change some computers location and tried to change there name with fog, it work but it broke the approbation relation with Active Directory.
    So to fix the problem we place them in workgroup manually (could we do that with fog?) then restart fog service.

    Is there an option in Fog 1.3 RC10 to avoid this problem?

    I’ve used fog to change hostnames of computers joined to a domain. It works fine. What’s most likely happening is the credentials you have saved in fog for AD don’t have the authority to disable the old computer objects so new ones can be made.

    At any rate - we’re just guessing and won’t be of much help until we can get a c:\fog.log file from an affected host from you.
