how to change computer naming in RIS


if you want to change how RIS names your computers during an install, click on Active Directory Users and Computers, select Domain Controllers, highlight your RIS server and right click it, choose 'properties'.


Click on the 'Remote Install' tab, then 'Advanced Settings'.


In Advanced settings you can click on the drop down menu and select Custom and customize it to your fancy, then click apply and restart the RIS service. Please note this is for New Clients, so if you want it implemented on existing machines then you have to do two things,


delete their current computer name from AD then do a new RIS install on each one indivually.


Test it by RIS installing a new computer.
