Hi,

I accidentally installed my sbs 2k3 with a server name that already exists.  There is a server name, MAIN, on the server that is an old Novell Netware software.  I have the server all configured but having troubles joining workstations to it, so I decided to change the sbs 2k3 server name from MAIN to Server1.  However, a friend told me I also have to make DNS changes.  What dns changes do I have to make and is there any othersteps I'm missing?  THanks
