Machine uses the same 'ComputerName' present on XP after migrating to Win 7

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


While deploying 7, i need to ensure that the machine uses the same 'ComputerName' present on XP. i.e if the XP

machine has host name as 'ABC' after migration from XP to 7 it uses 'ABC' as the host name.


any idea how do we go about it.
