(2005-11-20) Renaming W2K3 DCs

Posted by Jorge on 2005-11-20


As you may know with W2K it was not possible to rename a DC, besides demoting the DC, renaming the server and promoting it back to a DC.

With W2K3 it is possible to rename a DC and two different options exist:

(1) In all DFLs: you can use the Control Panel – System – Computername
(2) Only in DFL W2K3: you use the Control Panel – System – Computername AND/OR you can use netdom

The recommend approach is option (2) as with option (1) you might experience latency issues for the renamed DC to be "detected" by other DCs and clients/servers.

You might also wanna take a look at:
