    I want to write a script that will change a computer's name. I understand
    that I can use DSMOD to modify a computer account in AD. Is that the same
    thing as renaming the computer? Or do I need two parts, one to modify the
    account and one to modify the name?

  2. DSMOD will change the entry in Active Directory but there is nothing there
    to propgate this down to the computer. Have a look at the "netdom" command
