I think you should log as local admin on your pc and then change the name of
your computer. And then log again on your domain, but don't forget to delete
your machine from samba and add it with the new name else the server will
not let your computer log in.

  Objet : [Samba] Rookie Question - Change Computer Name

  We have been able to successfully install / configure SAMBA on our LAN /
WAN.  Everything is working out just fine.. Just 1 little problem (And I'm
sure it is something I screwed up or missed in the docs).

  When changing a computer name on the client PC (Win2k), I receive an
"Access Denied" error.  I've even tried using the root account to change the
name with no avail.  Although I am able to join the domain.

  I can post my smb.conf file if need be.

  Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!
