Last year I have been pretty busy with many MOSS projects, so I will start again with SharePoint Technologies :)
As I usually create VPC, I end up with different customer demo machines. Today I wanted to use one of them, but I thought if it was possible to change domain name/computer name in order to map other customer name.
My environment was a Single Server install (DC+Standalone server:Windows R2 2003 Server) of MOSS 2007 with english+spanish language pack.
The steps I followed were:
Finally, I wanted to change the computer name. So I used netdom tool http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/460e3705-9e5d-4f9b-a139-44341090cfd41033.mspx?mfr=true
As the server had DNS Service, a change in the configure entries was necessary too (including a FQDN that resolves to the server).
After this changes, I needed to change:
If you somehow run /clean before doing the gpfixup, you can use the GPMC http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/default.mspx to fix the problem.
Delete the link pointing to the old domain and create a new one (Linked Group Policy Objects)
[I tried the other steps in a VPC, and didn't work, so I tried the dcgpofix tool too and reboot with this in mind]
MOSS, VPC, DC, GPMC, SSP
