Changing Domain names for users in sharepoint

Posted on 2011-04-20
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
our company had a site that had users who had different levels of access on different sites and doc libraries, now we moved our company site to a different server and our domain name also changed due to some organizational changes. For example in the past a user  was abc\john and now it is xyz\john . Is there a way that i can change the domain name for all the users at  1 shot?  Users , usernames and permissions for those usernames should be same, We just have to change domain name. How can we do this?
