Or is it danger danger Will Robinson. I have a batch file that adds some
exceptions to the XP Windows Firewall. It uses the netsh command. e.g.
"netsh firewall add allowedprogram "C:\Program
Files\Novell\ZENworks\NALWIN32.EXE"". It's been working fine for ages but on
a few newly imaged PCs I'm now getting "Warning: Could not obtain host
information from machine: PCNAME". I've tried various suggestions that I've
found when Googling the message but so far nothing has worked. Has anyone
here encountered the same problem and did you find a solution? Thanks for
any replies.
