SDR CD boot with customized hostname

Hi, our Backup Exec server is BE2014 SP1 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 standard. We use SDR to restore clients. I found when we boot the target client with the SDR boot CD, the temp hostname of the client will be minixxx or similar. Is there a way to change this hostname to the actual client hostname?

For example, I want to use SDR to restore clientA, is it possible to boot from the SDR boot CD and change the clientname from minixxx to clientA? Thanks in advance.

Nopes, cannot change the hostname as this resource is temporary and read-only. Have a look @ this KB - http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH181397
