Terastation TS-XL\R5 best way to rename on domain
« on: July 15, 2010, 10:12:09 am »

Hi guys,my first post here...here goes

 

 I've connected our new TSIII to my office domain, joined it to AD, and copied over the contents of my failing Netgear NAS box onto it.

 

What's the best way to rename the TSIII on the domain?  I.e. to be the same name as my bad Netgear NAS box (currently my TSIII has the default name)..I will be pulling the Netgear box off the network at the same time, I want to give the TSIII the same name as the Netgear box so my users dont have to remap etc.

 

I'm guessing that I swap the TSIII to 'workgroup' then rename it to the Netgears name, pull down the Netgear NAS box and delete its account on AD, then add the TSIII back to the AD...is that correct?

Also what authentication settings do I need to temporarily set the TSIII to in workgroup mode, while I swap it over?

 

Cheers if you can help

Ian

Within the user interface under the system tab the first set of options will change the name and description
