Hi There

If i have setup DNS like the following

hitech04.hitechauto.local  (This is on the internal)

can I change my dns to hitech04.hitechauto.co.za without any problems

How will this affect me, would i have to rejoin all clients to the domain

If you have Active Directory installed, then you must use rendom.exe to rename the domain.

If you have Exchange installed, there is more to it.  However, there is a Microsoft Technet webcast that describes the process: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838623/

If you haven't got Exchange on the domain, the relevant webcast is: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=819145
