    Windows 2003 Forest Functional Level allows for the changing of a domain name by using the rendom.exe utility. It is obviously recommended to build your Active Directory Forest and Domains with a longterm mindset so this renaming and restructuring most likely will not have to occur.

    Domain renaming works OK with W2003 but not with W2000 or W2003 SBS. I think Exchange is the problem with W2003. Its easier to do a reinstall with SBS than change the domain name.

    Possible, yes... pain in the ..... possibly yes.

    I have used rendom a few times, mainly in lab settings. The results have varied. Some times, it works pretty well. Usually though, fragments of the old domain are still present. (ie. DNS zones).

    Use only if neccessary!!
