    Open the computer in Inventory, open the Computer menu, then click on "Update Name in Inventory".

    Thanks for the reminder. I found that option two weeks ago when the issue first came up. At the time, I was using the free PDQ Inventory/Deploy, so just figured that was one of the paid features. And couldn't find it when I was looking today.

    When you mentioned it, I tried again with some refreshed hope, and that option is grayed out and not available. Along with a few other options.

    Any suggestion?

    Looks like that's a bug. You have to click inside the window first (it should work if the Print Preview button is clickable).

    Got it. That worked, at least as far as enabling the option. I just need to find an excuse to rename another computer now.

     

    Thanks bunches!
