    Let say I have 5 computers joined a domain called "ABC123", each computer is named "Rain1, Rain2...", now I want to change the computer name to "Fox1, Fox2..."

    My question is if I just manually change the name without using the Network ID wizard, will the computer name listed in the active directory will be updated as well? Or I have to use Network ID to be truely renamed the computer name.

    Because someone told me that if the admin delete "Rain1" I cannot login as "Fox1" since the AD still see it as "Rain1"

    Thank you.
