NT Domain Name change DIR.EDB file

Hi All

I am changign the NT DOmain name on my network and have read all the articles etc.  1 thing that concerns me is that I have heard that the DIR.EBD has the NT DOMAIN name registered in it and if i change it, then Exchange will never startup.

Exchange Server (Exc5.5 SP4 - NT4sp6a - BDC).

Is there any truth to this?

Thanx for all your help
Andy

It is possible to move an Exchange 5.5 site to another domain. Here are instructions on how to do this. http://www.swinc.com/images/exch_faq_k2.gif

hi jjmck

thanx for that info.

my prob is this.  i need to rename my domain to conform with DNS standards.  i will doing the following,

1. break all trusts
2. set all services with DOMAIN/username to Manual Startup
and stop all services. ( i am only concerned with CRITICAL services here)
4. On PDC, rename domain and restart, setup all domain accoutns and services and start.  create new lmhosts and copy to BDCs


my next step should be to follow the document you send the link to.  Is that correct?.  (ie - create  a trust between the new domain and old domain?).  

thanx for your help.
