Hi, I'm running SQL Server 2005 with mixed-mode authentication where I use Windows domain login accounts in SQL Server.  My network admin needs to do a "Domain Rename" and I'm not sure how this will affect SQL Server.  Will the change automatically propogate through to SQL Server so the logins will specify the new domain name?  Or do I need to somehow change them manually or do some other modifications?  If so, what do I need to do and how do it do it?

I believe it should be fine, so long as all of the accounts keep the same sid.

The domain name is just a use friendly representation.  All that matters is the guts of it.  As long as your SID doesn't change you're fine.
