I'm trying to setup a domain for the organization I'm currently working for. It includes 1DC, 3BDC, 7RODC. I was at the point where i was ready to deploy, when i was told that they wanted a different domain name. I tried the steps from: http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/techscrawl/server-2008-domain-rename-28069
and it all went successful until after the domain was renamed and it restarted. That was step 8, step 9 for /rendom clean and after that didnt work so well, so i kept doing research and i had to change the dns suffix.. fine.. i found out how to do that with the help of this post http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_23609978.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+2008+domain+renam+window
problem is that even after the dns suffix was changed on the DC, the domain isn't completly renamed. when i tried the same commands to change the dns suffix for the BDC and RODC i would get a access denied error. Here are my problems:
1. 2BDC and 4RODC can't log in. They say that there's no server available to validate log in request.
2. When i tried make a client join the domain using the new domain name, the domain cannot be found, i try with the old name and it finds it but i get a name translation error.
3.Even if i scrap this failed rename project and format everything i already added about 400 user, it would be a real pain putting those back in.. is there a way to export them?
