My company is going through a re-branding effort right now and, simply put, I need to change my Internet FQDN from SCCM.CompanyX.com to SCCM.CompanyZ.com. I know I can change the Internet FQDN in the ConfigMgr site system Properties, but I'm a little fuzzy on how I would go about changing the URL that the internet-based client pulls policy from.
Has anyone done this before?

You'll need a new PKI server certificate with the new Internet FQDN name that you define in the site system properties, and configure IIS to use this new certificate. I seem to remember that site system roles periodically check for a new certificate so you don't need to restart the management point/distribution point etc but if you can, you'll be able to check for any errors immediately.
Then you need to get the new Internet FQDN of the management point to clients. If they also connect to the intranet, you can do this with a script. If on the Internet, you'll have to reinstall them (or manually configure it on the client, in Control Panel). For more information, see "How to Assign Configuration Manager Client Computers to the Internet-Based Management Point" (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb693488.aspx).
You'll obviously need to check for any changes required to the supporting instructure as well - such as ensuring clients can resolve the new name (DNS). And firewalls or proxy servers, if they use the Internet FQDN in any way.
