Every time I launch a Windows Server on AWS or Google Cloud it always provides a random Computer Name. As a good practice I always want my computers to be named descriptively.
In this case I would like to update my Windows Server 2016 Computer Name to DC01, which means Domain Controller 01, since I will be using this server for Active Directory.
Below is a step by step guide on how to rename my Windows Computers to a more descriptive name.
Right-click on the Window Icon on the lower-left of the screen. Then click on System.
On the System Information Window, under Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings click on Change settings.
