26 May
  1. Go to Network Connections (from the Network and Sharing Center, click on “Change adapter settings”.)
  2. Go to the properties of one network connection marked as “Unidentified” but on the private LAN.
  3. Go to the properties for IPv4.
  4. Click the “Advanced…” button.
  5. Select the DNS tab.
  6. Enter your domain name into the text box for “DNS suffix for this connection:”.
  7. Disable and then enable the connection to get NLA to re-identify the location.

Domain Rename

27 Jul

Today I did this live in a production environment for only  the second time in my career.

By large I followed the instructions here

I will add the additional steps I took shortly

 

UPN still points to old domain in ADUC

 

You can simply use for that MS DS Tools. On a DC in command-line type

to prepare users list

dsquery user -samid * -limit 0 | dsget user -samid | find /v "dsget" | find /v "samid" >>c:\users.txt

Select allOpen in new window

and now, you can simply update users

for /f %i in (c:\users.txt) do dsquery user -samid %i | dsmod user -upn %i@NewDNSDomainName -c

 

Prefer iPv4 over 6
