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.
