Mustafa,  
Personal choice here, but I would go for using Windows script host and I think 
the WMI interface object would give you all the power at your fingertips.  WSH 
would allow you to read in a text file which held a list of your machines and 
then you could iterate over each entry and run the WMI object methods to rename 
the machines...
 
checkout the Microsoft Script Center.. which has the answer to most probs 
alread coded...
 
cheers, Brianos

Hi all, 

Does anyone know of a resource kit script or anything else I can use to rename 
multiple Win2000 Pro machines?. Thanks very much in advance.

Mustafa
