Company name change requiring domain change

Does anyone have experience with changing Windows Domain name and all other moving parts (e.g. Exchange, Workstations, SQL, Office 365, etc....)

I will need to start putting together a work plan for this change and wanted someone that had experience with this give me their pitfalls and help me avoid them.  Reference links are great also.  Anything that can assist with getting me up to speed.


thanks all

A few things that come to mind that would be affected by a domain migration:
  1. NETAPP SAN/NAS CIFS and NTFS security
  2. Computers needing to be joined to the new domain
  3. Moving Exchange to the new domain

These are just a few things.  can you speak on any of them?
Note this is a Single Forest/single Domian structure.  Not a very complicated setup, but there is a NetApp with 40 TB of files as well as an exchange.  I thinking the powers that be will want nothing of the previous company's name around.

I was looking at doing an IntraForest restructuring/migration using ADMT and I am guessing that I need to build new Exchange Servers and move the mailboxes over.

Thank you all for you input. I am going to use this information to  see how important it is to the CEO that domain name stays.

It looks like I have to do a ADMT along with Exchange swing, SCCM, SQL and all LDAP  :(
