AD Domain Rename

we're most likely going to be changing our AD domain name, and was trying to look at the impact on Unity 4.2.1 unified messaging integrated with Exchange 2003. I know with the domain I'd use rendom, and then have to use the XDR-fixup tool to fix exchange. it does not appear to change the Exchange Org name. I suspect the answer is DIRT and rebuild for it to work, but I'd rather not rebuild all 3 unity servers.

Re: AD Domain Rename

Yes, you will need to do a DiRT backup and restore. You are essentially moving Unity to a new domain which is described in the following link.

Unity should not care what domain it is in, as long as SQL and the accounts are working correctly, you should be fine. But I was thinking about renaming a domain and it's along process. Looks like some lab work would be in your order to test it because of the size of your network.

I think the worst case scenario, Unity does not behave correctly, use your DIRT backup, and rebuild Unity into the domain.

If Unity was a member server, i wonder if it would be possible just to pull it out of the domain, add it the new domain and see if Unity runs. I have not tried that, but in the lab, be worth a try!
