we can use netdom in a little different fashion like
netdom renamecomputer %computername% /NewName:CoreSrv /Reboot 0
here we don't have to remember current computer name as we are using %computername% as a parameter which will automatically take the current name and /reboot can be specified in seconds, 0 will reboot instantly.
