Domain Rename

Is it possible to rename a stand alone active directory Windows 2003R2
server using the rendom tool? I am coming in second hand but who ever
set up this server has it running active directory for little to no
reason. They named it so DNS is resolving to,
a real domain. I have tried the tool and I am getting a 1825 error
when trying to rendom /prepair command. I have thought about just
removing AD but the domain has 12 workstations attached and I am
trying to save touching every machine.
