I migrated a Windows 2000 PDC to a Windiows 2008 PDC.  all was fine and tested until i renamed the new PDC computer nameat the end of the process   Now the FSMOs all point  to the pre-change server name.  It is as if the machine thinks it is still the old server name, but it is not (I can even connect to the old server name via ntdsutil, even thought it does not exist).  I have tried transfer fsmo and sieze using ntdutil but it does not work.  i have tired naming the comptuer back but that does not work since AD is not working.    

any suggestions?  this is sort of urgernt since i am suppose to wrap this up today.  thanks
