I’m setting up a Win2K12 R2 Essentials server (Clean Install).   I need to setup the domain suffix to be “” instead of the default “domain.local”.  What is the easiest method to modify the domain setup so that I may specify a custom domain suffix? Or can the suffix be changed after the fact? (Note: changing the suffix after the fact is not the preferred method... unless the solution also includes a comprehensive/verifiable explanation of why doing so is the correct method.)
