  • Rename Domain Controller

    Following the Petri guidlines for renaming a domain controller using the NETDOM comands.
    I finished step 1 giving "server1.domain.com" an additional name of "server2.domain.com" with no problems but when I tried to make "server2.domain.com" the primary the command kept failing. Another colleague rebooted the server over the weekend and now the server thinks it is "server2.domain.com".
    Running the /verify command on the "server2" name shows there is no computer object in the active directory domain services with a SAM Account. There is no (SPN) name for "server2.domain.com" in active directory domain services and when you look at active directory the domain controller still says "server1.domain.com"
    I am unable to complete the name change. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
