I run vCenter Server 6.7 on a Windows server (2012 R2).  It is part of a Windows domain that has a long upgrade history and I need to abandon that domain and go to a new one I just created.  Once I join the new domain, what if any issues will I have with vCenter Server?

Thanks Ben!  Sounds like the pain level isn't all that bad.  Always better to ask before I step in it over my head.

Much appreciated.

This went fairly smoothly.  Had a few minor glitches (forgot to inventory my network mappings on my local workstation. Can fake that.)
Thanks again!
