    A friend of mine just got a mac and needs a few things to use it on his corporate network.

    He needs to change the name of the machine on the network, meaning the name that I guess shows up when you go to connect to it via a windows machine. I guess his company names every machine a unique numbered name so they can keep track of them on the network.

    Secondly, he needs to be able to join a domain. I'm not even sure what he means by that. But it isn't a workgroup which is all I could think of.

    Thanks

    I think I just found the computer name, under Sharing, its at the top. Can it not have the .local appended on the end?

    you can find domain settings in the tcp/ip tab of your network connections settings.

    Thanks, thats probably what he wants.

    This is just one of the reasons I love macrumors. People are very helpful and quick.
