To improve Windows Server I suggest you ...

Change PC Name without restart

It is one of the most critical problem of Windows. Is not easy, I know this, but change the PC Name without force the restart could be one for the most important thing.


- Cannot be DC
- Cannot be Exchange Server or SQL Server

Scenarios where this feature could be interesting:

- Change naming convention of same machines
- File Server
- Hyper-V

    I'm not sure about this, a restart ensures that apps and services have the correct host-name when running...
    i don't see why you wold be changing the host-name so often that this is necessary
