  • Hi to all.

    In our company we also have 2 branch offices where connect with the main with vpn in a cisco 887.

    Yesterday i try to change the name in one of the branch computer without success.

    All the branch computers it is in a different network example

    Main 192.168.1.xxx

    Branch 1 192.168.2.xxx

    Branch 2 192.168.3.xxxand

    we had add routes in all our servers.

    All this years we dont had any problem with other things.

    The only problem is yesterday where i try to change the computer name.

    PS: The same computer changing only the IP when i connected to our main network i was able to change the computer name without any issue.

    Thanks and regards.

  • Hello,

    The IP space should not make a difference as long as the domain the computers are joined to is the same.

    However, you might ask in the Directory Services forum.
