 Effect of Domain Name Change of PDC

Hi All,

I need to change the Domain Name of the PDC (NT Server 4.0)
(e.g from Domain1 to Domain2).
How exactly should I proceed ? Is it just a name change and then adding all
the workstations again in the Server Manager ? OR  I have to Re-Install
every thing ?

There are SQL Server and VSS running on it.
Would they be effected ? What measures should I take ?

Please help ASAP.

You can not. On a PDC, if you need to change the domain name, you must
re-install NT Server.

Actually he is correct. You can not change the domain name of a PDC. The
only way is to reinstall with a new name. If SQL Server is installed on the
actual PDC box then you will also need to reinstall SQL Server. Backup your
databases first (obviously) and then after the reinstall you can attach them
to the newly installed server.

If you have SQL Server installed on a separate machine but on that domain
then changing domains may invalidate some of your users if you were using
WinNT authentication. If this is the case then you may need to modify the
security of your SQL Server users especially SQLAgentCmdExec to use the new
domain or to use local system accounts.
