I have inherited  the task of migrating from an SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 (Standard). For some reason, whoever installed the SBS 2003, named the domain name to XXXXX.NET. I want to change that name on the new install to a .local name (XXXXX.local). I'm using the 2011 migration tools. Can do I change that to a .local name without running into issues? This is worth 500 points to me, as I need to have this completed before the weekend is up. Thanks experts!
