    No way that I know of other than renaming the domain (if  you are running 2003) or rebuilding the domain.

    I would not recommend either choice in this case.  Way to much work and to many potential problems for just wanting to  chang the name from lower to upper case.

    making changes to any AD structure within a production environment is risky and not recommended. Changing the name will have no affect on performance or resolution, but hope this helps you.

    Do not go into a domain rename unless you are an AD WILL bite you in the backside, the tool has been flawed from day one and whilst it does occasionally work, it usually results in a rebuild....dont worry about the caps, it has no effect on functionality and you are provoking a big fire where there is no need
