this is not so simple. In order to work it has to handle some changes :
delete the previous name entry and add the new one. Maybe the sole solution
goes through a simple domain/workgroup switch.

Yes, Ive tried that, and it still doesnt work. The only way I have
gotten this to work is by un-joining the domain (Do WORKGROUP) then change
computer name, then re-joining the domain.
I posted this message thinking that it is possible to do with SAMBA. Is
SAMBA not capable of simply allowing a change in computer name? Hope not.
Thanks for the response!

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.

We have been able to successfully install / configure SAMBA on our LAN /
WAN. Everything is working out just fine
. Just 1 little problem (And Im
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. Ive 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!!!!!!!!!
