    Questions about the LDAP path of a domain

    I have a few questions about the LDAP path of a domain. If the LDAP path has been set up on a new domain as ABC.Schoolname.sch.uk why is it that the clients show ‘NETWORK’ at the logon on prompt and not ‘ABC’? I have not seen this before and always thought that the first part of the LDAP path would be what the clients displayed?

    Also is it possible to change this path once AD has been set up?

    The netbios name of the domain can be different to its dns name. In domains and trusts right click on the domain and view its properties. What is the name in the Pre windows 2000 domain name box?

    Not without a lot of trouble - http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true has details.

    Re: Questions about the LDAP path of a domain

    Right, I tried thison a test VMware set up last night and had mixed results. I got the LDAP path to change with RenDom without any problem. I did not have much luck with XDR-Fixup for renaming the Exchange server. I did reboot the clients twice as it told me to but they did not pick up the domain ( i gave up then as it was late)

    The live network will not be as complicated as this. I have only one DC at the moment and around 100 clients.

    Still think i won't do it though.

    Dont envy your situation, never been in your situation myself but i have read that its pretty sticky. Not the best thing to do, but is it possible to tear down the domain and start again?

    Re: Questions about the LDAP path of a domain

    The other way of doing it is to set up a second domain and use the "active directory migration tool" to migrate all the machines to this new domain.

    I've never done this either, but I understand that the current version of the tool makes it fairly easy.

    Does it matter if the netbios name is "network"? It seems like quite a good choice of name!

    BTW when i said tear the domain down i meant migrating, or you lose everything. It seems more work then its worth to me.
