Recently I was testing renaming the NETBIOS name of an Active Directory domain. While this process is fairly easy, there are a few gotcha’s, and before one would like to rename their domain or NETBIOS name, serious testing is required to be sure everything works after rename. In the end, if something goes wrong, the rollback will not be a walk in a park. It will hurt, and it will eat your time. So there was I going thru the usual steps.
