Hello Experts,

I have a client who is merging with other 2 companies, and they want to consolidate and centralize AD. He wants to know the implications and pros and cons of renaming a Windows 2008 2012 forest/domain

Any possible issues with renaming a windows domain? any step-by-step and checklist docs that you can provide?


Thanks in advance
