I'm using win2000 server, and I'm wondering if I could change the domain without removing and install Active Directory again.. :confused:

Sorry, that is not possible !

I hope this a Test lab and not a production enviroment , because the only way to change your Domain name is to run DCPromo and demote your DC back to a member Server. Then run the AD install again with your new Domain name.

In any event, good luck :)

Thanks for the tip. Hey how can I backup users? By using Backup tools in Accessories?

Do you only want to back up users ?

When you specify your Backup, and if you back up everything, users are backed up as well.

If you know where the users are stored, you could back them up without backing up everything else.

Uninstalling AD is never a good thing, but be warned when performing an Authoriative Restore Authoriative Restore Error

Always remember what you are using for your TOP level domain names people! :china:

Adios
