Default Active directory/ Domain question

Hi all, Im setting up a practice server at home (for work) with Server 2003. I just ran dcpromo and installed dns but I used the wrong domain name. Is it possible to change it now?

Hey Tater

I've used to learn MCSE back in 2000.
As much as i remember you cannot change the name.
You will have to run it over again.
I would try to consult microsoft about it, even if you don't have a legal
copy, i think that they will answer you.

Windows 2003 allows you to rename the domain. Win2k did not.

Great! Thank you DaChicken, you saved me a couple of hours. Didn't think I could be changed and almost didn't even ask.
