Internet domain name and AD domain name do not match
Posted on 2016-08-04
Hi, I joined a company that had AD environment, but the AD domain name is totally different from the internet domain name that they own.
Actually, their AD domain name is owned by someone else.
We don't have an in-house web server nor the mail server, so I am not really experiencing real issues.
Do I need to rename it and why? I understand that it's best to do that. It is weird, I know.
But what is wrong with it? What problem can I expect? It is working just fine.
If I really do need to rename it, I can make a clone of the hard drive of the domain controller (we only have one), and try it.
