I have a clusted 2003 server that was set up by a contractor.  The machine was migrated into a new domain however, the netbios name is still showing computer.olddomainname.newdomain name.  The dumb contractor named the machine computername.olddomain name as a name.  The problem are crazy, I have trouble getting to the cluster adminstrator and other issues.. Is there a way to rename these machines without messing up SQL (that's installed on these boxes) or the cluster.  Im not sure if I can put them in workgroup and then rename them and then join the domain again.  Or can I just rename them with a command?  I need to be 150% sure that if I do this it will not upset the cluster or SQL

You cannot change any computer name when cluster/sql installed.
If you want to rename computer name you have to evict the computer then rename it. Then you can add to cluster again.

so basically break the cluster and rename it then put the cluster back together?
