change domain on terminal server

Hi all, we have a Windows Server 2008r2 Terminal server on a domain that we are going to delete due to business name changes, We Have created a new domain and now need to dis join the terminal server from the old domain and join it to the new one.
I just wonder is this as straight forward is run dc-promo and disjoint then dc-promo and rejoin or is it more involved?
We have user profiles on there that read username.domain name so think this might get tricky.
Any help appreciated.
Many thanks.

You won't need to use dcpromo, that is only to promote and demote domain controllers in domains. You will need to remove the terminal server from the old domain, reboot, make whatever name changes are required, reboot, then add it to the new domain.

You will then need to have your users log onto the terminal server from the new domain, which will create them a new profile on the terminal server. You can then copy their old profile from the old domain to their new profile. Do this by going to Advanced System Settings(by right clicking Computer -> Properties), then the Advanced tab, then the Settings button under User Profiles. You can copy one profile on to another. The user will likely need to be logged off of the terminal server before you can copy their old profile to the new.
