    How to rename Windows 2003 server+Exchange 2003 SRV Netbios Name

    We have two domains with the same netbios domain name and they can't create a
    trust relationship between both.
    How can I do to create this trust relationship? I should rename Netbios name
    in one of the domains?? Or what can I do without depromocionate any of both?
    Thanks

    Hello Victor,

    Domain rename operation is the only way to change NetBIOS name. But with
    exchange it is more complex:

    I agree with Danny and Meinolf. A domain rename is in order. The following
    are some more info and links concerning domain renamesm especially if
    Exchange is involved, in addition to what Danny and Meinolf posted.

    ================================================
    Domain Rename Procedure and Notes:

    Note: The Domain and Forest functional levels must be set to 2003. If you
    have Exchange 2003, make sure it is minimal SP1 in order to support a domain
    rename. If Exchange 2000, either upgrade to 2003, or Exmerge all of your
    mailboxes to PSTs, uninstall Exchange 2000, run the domain rename operation,
    then reinstall Exchange 2000, and use Exmerge to pump the mailboxes back in
    the user's newly created mailbox accounts.

    Also, if a PKI infrastructure was installed (Certificate Services), it will
    need to be removed first prior to a domain rename:

    http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Domain-Rename.html

    The following was quoted from:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc738208.aspx

    Keep in mind after a rename procedure, the DC's Primary DNS Suffix is not
    automatically changed to match the new domain name. You are required to
    change the Primary DNS Suffix to match the new name. In other words, unlike
    the names of member computers, the DNS names of domain controllers in a
    renamed domain will remain unchanged. The domain controllers can be renamed
    in a separate step, using a special domain controller rename procedure,
    after the domain rename operation is complete. You must double-check ALL
    domain members to insure that their Primary DNS Suffix matches the new
    domain name.

    not match the name of the domain after you upgrade a Windows NT 4.0 primary
    domain controller to Windows 2000
