When trying to change the name or domain of a computer, you can get the following error:
Computer Name / Domain Changes
Changing the Primary Domain DNS name of this computer to <<Computer Name>> failed. The name will remain <<Computer Name>>. The error was:
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.
To fix this:
- Ensure that UPD port 137 is open between the domain controller and PC you are trying to change the name or domain of
- NETBIOS over TCP/IP should be set to enabled or default (this property can be found on the WINS tab of the TCP/IP properties of the network card)
