SBS 2007 domain name change
Posted on 2011-03-20
I have a sbs server that has a local domain name of XYZ.LOCAL and it's exchange domain is mycompanyname.net. I have a domain name ownership problem that is threatening my future as mycompanyname.net.
The single biggest issue is the mx registration for mycompanyname.net. I have users that have this email address, and all mail sends directly to that SBS server. my question is if I come up with a suitable public name that is available, what's the "least amount of work" to adapt this new name in my infrastructure. If I can add a domain alias to my existing that would be simple, and the original domain would not matter any more.
If this could be done, then all my users would become:
Old Name New Name
is this possible, i.e. to host a new "domain name" for users, without tearing down the old name?
IF my question is not clear, I will be happy to elaborate a little... thanks for any feedback.
