The Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Domain Rename Tools provide a more secure and supported methodology to rename one or more domains (and application directory partitions) in a deployed Active Directory forest. Both the DNS and the NetBIOS name of a domain can be changed using the domain rename procedure. This Support WebCast presents an overview of the procedure must be completed to carry out a domain rename operation, the transformations that occur in the underlying infrastructure, the constraints on a domain rename operation, and practical tips on Do’s and Don'ts based on our self-hosting experience at Microsoft.
