I know exactly what ipconfig /all does and my comment did make sense, I was referring to the fact that I was working remotely and there was a limited number of clients that were left turned on, after my first post I lost connectivity to all of them so could not run an ipconfig /all on any clients that had the problem.
Don't understand why you said "changing the sids does not matter but machine name certainly does", I think we can safely say that you have assumed I'm a complete f---ing idiot but I did go to the trouble to write an additional post clearly explaining that I had changed all machine names, somehow that wasn't enough to spare me receiving a patronising comment from you about the importance of changing hostnames.
Fat lot of help you were anyway Wanderer, really wish people like you who just talk bs, attempt to belittle the other person and don't actually offer any help, just wouldn't bother posting.
And I don't have a gas tank, I have a petrol tank.
