"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No.

Once Exchange, AD, and the rest is set up, changing domain names is a royal pain and Microsoft will say No before you even finish that sentance...

It is possible to uninstall Exchange and AD, and then restart the SBS procedure (including ADPREP and Exchange) in earlier versions of SBS, but I haven't been able to get it to work in 2011.

If you are referring to Active Directory domain name, then no there is only one way and that is to re-install OS.
