Changing Network Domain Name???

By kesterls15 ·
At work, we have a Network (W2K Advanced Server with SQL 7 + Exchange 2K Server)with a Domain named after our company and we are looking at becoming a small ASP.
The problem is that the client we are offering a soloution to says that it is unacptable to have to log on to a nomain named after out company.
Is there any way of changing the Network Domain Name without starting from scratch?

Changing Network Domain Name???

by Buckle In reply to Changing Network Domain N ...

There are several ways of doing this. This is how I defined a second domain name.
1) Pick an IP number from your IP range.
2) Set up a DNS server for your new domain with only the one IP number defined(you can have as many domain names as you like associated with an IP number or range.)
3) Register the new domain name.

This is just the outline, each of these steps could be divided into several sub-steps
and also implies the prerequisites such as NIC-handles, secondary DNS servers etc.
This is the method I found easiest when I set up an additional domain name here several years ago and it has worked without any hassles.

I believe that NetIQ and Bindview both offer a product, but it is not cheap!

No problem, make you client register the domain name that he wants, and fill DNS records (upon services required) with the valid internet address asigned (no matter where the server resides, that is in his ip range or your's or any other provider)
