Domain Rename - Windows 2012 or Windows 2016

    Question

  • We are seeking some input on a domain rename either on a windows 2012 or windows 2016 forest/domain level.   Can you do a rename if you have Exchange deployed in the current environment?     Is there any improved using these new forest/domain levels?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd ask over here about how this would impact exchange.

    Hi

     If you have exchange on your domain environment domain rename does not supported.So you should migrate current domain to new domain.
