I would like to develop a script/tool that I can use in my workplace environment that will do the following:

remotely connect via PC name
locate the PC name in the registry
delete the last three characters of the PC name and replace them with "old"

most importantly, I would like the tool to be capable of doing this for multiple machines concurrently.

I'd also like to set it up behind a GUI to make it easier for newer and less experienced techs.

any ideas?

I'm no programmer btw... but I'm working on learning.

It might help if we knew what you were trying to accomplish. Using GPO would probably be the easiest.

basically, I'm trying to figure out a way to rename a remote PC (on a domain) without having to be in front of the PC in question.

The reason that I'm trying to set things up to do multiples concurrently is for time saving.

The basic concept is that older machines have to be renamed prior to building the replacement to avoid naming conflicts in the domain.
