renaming 2003 domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All I have red experiences of people who done domain rename.

    I have a different situation and i whish to discuss with you guys to see whether i have any other option instas of Domain Renaming.

    I have  2  win 2003 servers (PDC & BDC) one is Primary DC and the second one is replication partner of the first one. The FQDN is PDC.Mycompany.com and BDC.mycompany.com.

    My issye is, our corporate E mail ID also has the same domain name admin@mycompany.com.

    As Mycompany.com refering to my domain, i couldnt use e mail server with the same domain name. 

    is it possiable to maintain my domain name mycompany.com and use exchange or other 3rd party mail servers to configure a mail server mycompany.com?

    I have tried to use Mdaemon . but it is not allowing me to configure mycompany.com as a e mail server.

    As mycompany.com is my web address, and mail.mycompany.com is my incoming and outgoing e mail servers in the internet, i have made  2 entries in the DNS to enable communication to web and mail

    WWW and MAIL

    is it possiable to configure an e mail server with current settings (domain mane --mycompany.com

     

     

    regards

    Hi.

    Who tells you that you "couldnt use e mail server with the same domain name".

    You can!

    Obviously you have to remove your external mail server and manage all messages with an internal mail server.
