Change the name of a Windows 2000 PDC Se

By mark.radcliff ·
Due to a recent company acquisition, we need to change the name of our Windows 2000 Primary Domain Controller. This machine is using DHCP, DNS and Active Directory. Can this be done with out reload the OS? Any help is appreciated

Change the name of a Windows 2000 PDC Se

Go to Network and Dialup connections, Advanced, Network identification and make the proper changes. Make sure you delete and dynamic entries off WINS, and make the appropriate changes in WINS static, DNS, etc...

Good Luck!

I have already tried this. Windows 2000 will not allow a Primary Domain Controller to be renamed.
