Hello inenewbl,

Do you mean the NetBIOS domain name after choosing ctrl+alt+del in the logon
to window?

Did you follow all steps as listed under "Domain Rename Processes and Interactions":
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738208(WS.10).aspx

Is the "Primary DNS suffix of this computer" changed also on system properties,
computername tab, change button, more button to the new one?

Best regards

Hi Meinolf,

Sorry for late reply.

Ans to your questions.

Do you mean the NetBIOS domain name after choosing ctrl+alt+del in the logon
to window? Yes, it still reflect the old domain name

Did you follow all steps as listed under "Domain Rename Processes and
Interactions"? Yes

Is the "Primary DNS suffix of this computer" changed also on system
properties,
computername tab, change button, more button to the new one? No, it still
reflect the old domain name. The "change primary dns suffix when domain
membership changes" chkbox is enabled by default.

Pls advise. Thks in advance.

"Reconfigure servers and workstations for the new domain:
After you’ve renamed the domain and changed network components affected by the renaming process, you must verify that member servers and workstations are able to access the renamed domain. For Windows NT 4.0 servers and workstations, this means manually unjoining the old domain and joining the new domain. Windows 9x and Windows ME machines simply require you to specify the name of the new domain in the login prompt.

Windows 2000 servers and workstations, Windows .NET servers, and Windows XP workstations must be simply rebooted. The only catch is that in order for the change to work properly, each of these machines must be rebooted twice. It isn’t necessary to reboot domain controllers as they have already been updated."

The above was quoted from:
TechRepublic Tutorial: RenDom helps you to rename a Windows .NET domain

Hello inenewbl,

Ace already asked about Exchange? If Exchange 2003 is used you MUST also
run and reboot twice:
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=842116

Ace is correct, domain members must be rebooted twice, see also the official
documentation for domain rename:

. Reboot member computers. Reboot twice all member workstations, member servers,
and standalone servers (excluding domain controllers) that are running Windows
2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 Server family in the renamed domains
in your forest. Rebooting twice ensures that each member computer learns
of the domain name changes (LSA policy changes) and propagates them to all
applications and services running on the member computer. Note that each
computer must be restarted by logging into the computer and using the Shutdown/Restart
administrative option. Computers must not be restarted by turning off the
machine power and then turning it back on.

From "Step-by-Step Guide to Implementing Domain Rename":

Hi
Adding to other suggestions, make sure that everything is ok by running
diagnostic tools like dcdiag, repadmin and netdiag. Hopefully you'll not
sorry latter.
