    I admin a 2000 AD Infrastructure we are planning to implement Exchange 2003
    however when AD was setup orginially it was setup using the comapnyname.com
    we would like to change to companyname.local - Currently I have two doman
    controllers. Here are my two options as I see them:
    Domain Rename- ? or can I add a doman named companyname.local under
    companyname.com and move by server to companyname.local ?

    Thanks in advance for your feedback

    Can I add a domain companyname.local under our current companyname.com I am
    under the impression having our AD Infrastructure as a .com is not a good
    practice?
    Can anyone provide any feedback on this..


    Thanks Mallika... I have read both articles Domain Rename doesn't sound like
    the way to go based on procedure...

    Can I add a domain under companyname.com as companyname.local? I am looking
    to do this as I have heard having AD setup as a .com is not a good practice?



    Thanks for the post Mallika I have read both articles and seems to be a
    messy way to accomplish my goal.

  5. companyname.com is fine. Lots of organizations use a registered namespace
    for their AD. I always recommend this when I'm working with a client unless
    there is a specific reason not to.
