I have a Late 2011 15" MBP that somehow the main computer name is listed as SFL40. I've tried to change it and in the sharing applet is states Use SFL40 or The Name I Want To Use to connect to this Mac. I've tried the terminal command and it still won't change.


Anyone have any suggestions?



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
