Rename a Domain so we can install Exchange 2010

By PMidnite ·
I need to rename our domain name because it has the underscore character in it and we cannot install Exchange 2010. It is a small Windows 2003 single domain active directory with Exchange 2003. I have researched the random tool and several documents discussing domain rename. From the threads on this forum, it appears that this is a complex and risky procedure. If I follow the steps in the Step-by-Step Guide to Implementing Domain Rename and the article 842116, Supplemental steps for using the Exchange Server Domain Rename Fixup tool, will this work and what are the risks?

Also can anyone give me an idea of how long this procedure takes?

Just a quick question here

As Exchange 2010 is a 64 Bit Application is your 2003 Server a 64 Bit OS?

If it's a 32 Bit OS 2010 isn't going to run on it or for that matter be able to be installed.
