My personal test lab has a fully functional Windows Domain in order to properly test my applications for corporate networks. As a result, I require all of my windows boxes, when possible, to be attached to my domain for further testing purposes. Since I’ve just added a few Windows 8 boxes, I had to “learn” the attachment process all over again.
After the system reboots, I’m presented with the customized disclaimer message I configured for my domain users… which was the expected results.
Now that my system is attached to the domain, I’ll want to log in with my Domain account…
Then I’m presented with the new default windows 8 screen…
But let’s say I want my domain account to be linked to my Windows Live account.
Warning… the tab button does not work on this user/pass screen… grrrr!

Run this command in Terminal:
sudo scutil --set HostName Daniel-MM.moranit.local
This is what it looked like for me:
But that’s not all… all that does is change the name when you type “hostname” at a terminal window…
What if you want to change it and your using BigFix or something like that…
Go to Applications->System Preferences->Sharing
change the “Computer Name” field to the desired value
also click “Edit” and change that too…
Then your all done.
