I have been using the shutdown command for years. I never realized you could rename a PC with it. shutdown doesn't do the renaming, you just have to reboot after you rename. I use "m" instead of c for computer name /c is the comment for the logs to tell them that you just "Renamed Machine", it doesn't rename it, it literally puts "Renamed Machine" into the reboot logs. Ok. Got ya.
