Change Computer Names

New Contributor

Can MUT be used to change computer names? I have a batch of computers for which we need to change all of their names and do not want to rename them one at a time.

you can make a .csv of the serial,computer_name and use this script to rename them.

Hi I am trying to follow the way you suggested but the where can i find the contents,

What is the naming convention that you're using? You could also just put them into a group and run a policy to rename them via script when they check in next.

@aeckhart77 Yes it can. It can also change a variety of other values for large groups of records. The other items mentioned here can also do this or help, but the MUT is a great tool that we use regularly for things well beyond just naming.
