Server 2012 Essentials Change Domain Name
Posted on 2014-12-30
I have a client that has just purchased a company. They have a Server 2012 Essentials and is linked to Office 365 for email.
They want to change the domain name from oldcompanyname.com (and associated oldcompanyname.local, and remote.oldcompanyname.com for RDP) to newcompanyname.com (and remote.newcompanyname.com for RDP). They want to change email from using @oldcompanyname.com to @newcompanyname.com)
So, can we change the Server 2012 domain name to the new .newcompanyname.com? If so, how?
I have seen people that say you can do it, and others that say not to do it.
