Problem with Exchange 2010 after renaming Domain Controller Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've recently changed my Domain Controller server name (Windows Server 2008 R2) to "AD-Princ", i changed it because I forgot to change the original name the server has by default (WIN-S8FJHD8).

    The problem is that I have a Exchange 2010 SP1 Server that has problem in his Management Console whit the nex problem:

    Unable to find "WIN-S8FJHD8" computer information in domain controller "WIN-S8FJHD8" to perform suitability check. Verify the fully qualified doamin name. It was running the command "Get-OrganizationConfig"

    And everytime I try to open something it shows me the same message, but the last part changes, like It was running the command "Get-FederationTrust"

    I also tried the option Modify Configuration Domain Controller, but when I browse to specify a Domain Controller it shows me the same message that appeared me first but the last part changes with It was running the command "Get-OrganizationalUnit -SingleNodeOnly | Filter-PropiertyEqualTo -Propierty 'Type' -Value "Domain".

    Thanks for your time.

  • Hi saulw,

    Per your descritption, it seems not supported.
    In my opinion, I would add other DC server, and move all the roles to the new DC, and then remove the DC server form the ORG, and then change the server name, and then let the prompt old server as the DC server.
