Changing the Workgroup on Windows Home Server 2011 (Video)

I have finally got round to doing this screencast to show how to change the Workgroup on Windows Home Server 2011 as it had proved tricky in the past before Microsoft posted a good tip for doing it on their site.

The process involves using remote desktop to remote into the server and then using an elevated powershell to enter in a couple of commands. It’s as simple as that, but up until recently the process of doing this hasn’t been clear as the guide from Microsoft was not available.

Commands to type into the powershell:

$sysinfo = Get-WmiObject Win32_ComputerSystem
$sysinfo.JoinDomainOrWorkgroup("workgroupname")
