Step 1: From the DC run the rendom /list command.

A Domainlist.xml file will be created that lists the current domain information.

We are interested in the section towards the end of the short file <NetBiosName>Oldname</NetBiosName> 

- Change this to <NetBiosName>Newname</NetBiosName>

Step 2: Edit this file to replace all mention of the old domain with the new NETBIOS name.

Step 3: Upload the modified xml toour domain controllers using the command rendom /upload 

– filename must remain unchanged – Domainlist.xml

Step 4: Is to verify the radiance of the domain controllers using Run rendom /prepare.

Step 5: The grand moment has come when you do the transfer rendom /execute.
