  • Needed Macro advice for Local Users

    New to the Hyena scene, but from what I have seen so far, this tool will help out alot.

    Now, I am needing to change the administrator account on all workstations to another name. Now I did some searches here and found the programs to use, but I am not strong on the macro functions.

    could someone post a sample of what I might need to say rename the local administrator account to (for say) "test" on all domains workstations.

    Thanks for the help

    Unfortunately Hyena can't rename an account on multiple computers, but rather one at a time. My recommendation for this would be to use our freeware RenameUser utility from

    You can create a batch file with one line per computer and use this utility to do the rename for you.

    You can use Hyena's Generate Macro function to create the batch file for you. The way to do this is to select your servers in the right window of Hyena, then go to Tools->Generate Macro. In the Macro Command String box, type in:

    renameuser.exe %E% administrator test

    Type in an output file of c:\renuser.bat and click OK. Hyena will then create the file renuser.bat with one line per computer and substitute the computer name for the %E%. Just run the renuser.bat file and it will make the changes for you.

      WOW, thanks for the fast reply.
      I now know why we bought the licenses, great service.

      Is the commands for the macros proprietary or generic. I ask cause I would like to study up on this more.

      thanks again.

        This would only work in Hyena, if that is what you are asking.

        You can use the Generate Macro function for other uses, but this would just be in Hyena.
