    What are your domain and forest functional levels?
    Do you have Exchange set up?

      Are you sure that your not just seeing the domain netbios name rather than the full DNS name???

      Where are you checking the name???

      Check DNS and see what the domain name is that is showing in there.

      You should also check the DNS Suffix for the computer whcih should be set as the correct DNS name.

          Check DSA.msc and DNS Server & My Computer > Properties , netdom & etc

          Full DNS name : amoffice.

          That's all

            AFAIK with no Exchange RENDOM is risk free but if you have multiple DCs I would take one off line to make a restore easier if needed.
            If not, have some good AD backups "just in case"

              the question might be, what benefits do you hope to gain by changing from a single-level domain name?

              I mean, whatr you have isn't hurting anything at the moment..
