You can't rename a DC while it's installed to server AD.
You'll have to build up a second temporary DC, transfer roles (if any) for the current to the temp,
demote the DC to a member server, reboot as many time as necessary, change its name, promote it
back to DC, transfer roles back.
Maybe there is a "hack" way to do it without having to do this, but it's probably more complicated
and would generate for sure, evil side-effects.
Using Win2k AD, how do I rename a Win2k server that is NOT a dc?
