Matching up Console name to Network name

Just curious if there is a report that I can use to find machines where the Console machine name doesn't match the network name stored in properties.

Our process has always stated that site IT should reimage all machines being redeployed to new users. Unfortunatly, this doens't always happen and in the cases where the AutoBoot account is still accociated with that machine, they may change the pc name and not notify anyone to change it in console. This would make supporting the issue if there was any issue.

RE: Matching up Console name to Network name

I don't know if this is recommended but I run this weekly task from the server:

SbAdmCl.exe -adminuser:<user> -adminauth:<hash> -command:RenameMachineToNetworkName -group:* > "Path to log file"

Then I do a quick review of the logs each week to check for errors.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
