Rename Domain Name
Posted on 2004-09-20
Ok, I did something stupid. I set up a new Windows 2003 Small Business Server on Friday, and somehow managed to mis-spell (mis-type) the company name for the domain name. Now, every where I look in the system, the domain name is missing an 'i'. I have already setup Exchange (which is working fine), and transferred all of the data, and joined all 27 computers to the new domain. So, I did some research and found the 'rendom.exe' tool, and wanted to know, is this what I use? Has anyone had to use it? What can I expect from it? Is there a better way to do this? Should I even bother? The only reason that I noticed it, is in the Global Address List in Outlook, it automatically creates a group, and that group is mis-spelled. Ouch, I feel dumb!
I have already changed the domain dns suffix, but that doesn't change the domain name.
