Rename Client machine Computer name in a Server 2008 domain

FrankyTech
Hi can someone advise me on how to change the Computer Name of my client machines connected to my domain controller (server 2008 r2).

I have about approx. 330 users, whose computer name must be changed since we are standardizing the naming convention. Is there a script on how to do all at once or doing each 300+ user manual one by one.

    I migrated from a Netware server to a Windows domain server a few years ago. I had to change all the computer names manaully and switch from a workgroup to a domain. I used TightVNC to remote on to each PC, that made it a little more effiecient than physically moving to each PC.
