I may have need to change our Microsoft Windows 2012 R2 domain name (e.g.  mycompany.local  to  newcompany.local ).  If so, is there a safe way to change the domain name?  Or is this something that should not be considered?

This solution looks correct.  I have not opted to proceed yet until I review all possible ramifications of doing so.
