Hi I have recently inhertited a 2003 AD that has a DNS zone already created for network naming. Thing is its  created with a .com zone ie the external domain and not the usual .local you'd see. Now this company do not host there own dns/web servers. so what i was wondering is there are handy way to reconfigure this zone with a .local domain instead of the .com. without losing anything or disturbing network users?

No, not a "handy" way.

You'll need to rename the domain.  Which is no small (trivial) endeavour.

If there is no Public presence, then don't worry about it.

I use a .com namespace, but I own the domain name - since it's not yet publicly acessible then I have no issues to worry about.
