To rename a domain controller, take the following steps:
  1. Log on to the domain controller you want to rename.

  2. Click the Start menu and right-click My Computer.

  3. Select Properties from the Context menu.

  4. Select the Computer Name tab and click the Change button. You will see a message telling you that you cannot move a domain controller without demoting it and that you are only changing the name of the domain controller in an existing domain. Click OK to continue.

  5. Enter the new host name of the domain controller and click OK. A dialog box will ask you for appropriate credentials to complete the name change.

  6. Enter the user name and password of a user who is a member of the Domain Admins group.

  7. Acknowledge the warning that you will need to restart the computer.

  8. Click OK to exit the Properties screens and restart the computer.
The name change will be complete once the computer restarts. It may take some time before users or other computers within Active Directory can find the new domain controller, as the changes propagate gradually throughout the Directory.
