    Hi friends

    Now i want to change my domain name to another name, after change the computer name server.domain.loacl to server01.domain.loacl, exchange services does not start. Exchange IS and SA services not started. Please suggest the right way to complete this task.

    I also want to change my domain name to new domain name.

    Old DC - server.domain.loacl
    New DC - server01.example.com

      The simple rule with Exchange is quite simple - you don't rename the server or the domain. It breaks Exchange. If you wanted to rename your domain then you should build a new domain and move the data across.

        According to this it is possible, and since you are on a test environment it's probably worth having a read: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Domain-Rename.html

          it is possible in E2k3 no longer possible in E2k7.
          Since this is a test lab, rebuild , much easier.

            The OP is using E2K3 not E2k7.
