Changing T5300 name

Is there a way of changing the T5300's name in Windows CE control panel so it matches the BIOS asset ID through Altris?

Thanks

Re: Changing T5300 name

You can change the name of your T5500
go in control Panel Applet System
then Network TAB by default Name looks like HPXXXXXXXXX

or there is another way with altiris deployment solution server
use the console

Re: Changing T5300 name

Our users do not have permissions to go into the control panel, so this can not be done by them.

and the console only changes the display name in Altiris. If you go into the systems properties, it still whos the other name.

There must be a job or something for this?

Re: Changing T5300 name

With altiris deployment console
right click on the TC you want to rename
click on configure and not rename and you will be able to change the computer name on the machine and not only the name display in the console
