Experts!

I have just completed setting up a new Server with Windows 2003 Small Business Edition (Win2K3 SBE) and everything went just great until I was informed that I had the parent company name as the domain name and not the actual operating company name. Fortunately, I don't have any computers or users on the domain yet, but with all the integrated applications like Exchange Server and SharePoint Services I don't want to start from scratch reloading the OS. What is the best way to minimize work and time lost without creating major problems down the road?

Hopefully, someone can delineate the procedure in general or point me to a KB or other web page that provides the details.

Thanks!

Brian

I am afraid that renaming SBS is not possible.  Renaming a domain is only possible with the following O/S's:

Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition
Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition
Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition

I wish I had better news :S
