Office 365 domain issue

We are running SBS 2011 and trying to setup an Office 365 hybrid so we can test with 10 users.

Our external domain name is abc67.com

Our internal domain name is abc.local

I have read a few posts about using iDFix to correct the .local but nothing to change the entire domain name.

How will this affect our 60 users? I am not liking the idea of visiting each and every computer and messing around with profiles.

Just add the abc67.com suffix and change the UPNs.

Hybrid might be an overkill for 60 users, you can easily migrate them via cutover migration.

No it won't, you are only adding additional domain suffix, not renaming the domain.
