Allows you to specify a name for a computer running the Windows operating system so that the changes made by using ksetup will update the target computer. For examples of how this command can be used, see Examples.


ksetup /server <ServerName>





The full computer name on which the configuration will be effective, such as IPops897.corp.contoso.com.

If an incomplete fully qualified domain computer name is specified, the command will fail.


There is no way to remove the targeted server name; you can only change it back to the local computer name, which is the default.

The target server name is stored in the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\LSA\Kerberos. It is not reported by using ksetup.


Make your ksetup configurations effective on the IPops897 computer that is connected on the Contoso domain:

ksetup /server IPops897.corp.contoso.com
