I am having a problem with ARD 3 and 10.4.8 clients. Specifically,
I use the "change computer name" on a machine, and ARD tells me the
change is successful and updates the computer list to reflect it.
But, when the machines are rebooted, they seem to revert back to
their original name. I don't recall this happening the first few
times I used it... anyone got any ideas?
are using managed (Open Directory) environment or your macs are
standalone? If first is the case, than the settings in the
OpenDirectory (WGM -> Computer Accounts > Computer name -> use this
name for managed computers) is overriding the settings you apply
manually or with ARD.
Thanks for all the replies, both on-list and off.
Yes, the machines are all in an OD, I should have said this before.
Does this mean I have to turn off that setting for all the computers
in the computer list? I notice there is no "select all" option :-P
Yes, every single one by one ... I don't like it either but I haven't
found a way around it. You could delete all of them from OD and inport
them again in a batch ... or if you have thousands you could do a script
which deletes that attribute directly from LDAP for computer each record
(you can see that in WGM -> Inspector)
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
