How do i rename Domain Controller name in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2

The Best Answer

Just be sure that all the applications you have installed in your domain can also work after a domain rename.  I don't know if it is still the case (my guess is that it is), but it used to be that you could not rename a domain if Exchange was installed
in the domain.  Renaming a domain is not like renaming a server.  There are a lot of things tied into that domain and you need to ensure that everything you have installed in the domain will work properly after renaming the domain.  In other
words, I hope you have a good lab that has your production environment replicated so you can test things there before actually renaming the production environment.
