Renaming an Active Directory Domain Controllerin a working environment
Posted on 2004-08-09
I have recently received a newly registered domain name and would love to change my current working domain controller to the new one in a windows 2000 server environment.
Cumputer name RPDSERV21
Current Domain Name: FID.fsl.org.jm
New Domain Name: FID.gov.jm
This server is currently used to authenticate users and provide file service.
I would like to resolve this situation with minimum dislocation to the users (numbering about 100).
I have installed a second similar server in the current domain which is seen as a backup, and is actually reflecting the active directory.
I have a 180 day trial of Windows 2003 server, and am presently preparing to purchase a full copy. This may take some time.
I would appreciate some guidance in solving this situation.
Thanks in Advance.
