I have a customer with a windows 2003 server, with 10 users a at one location and 2 at a second location.
I put in a site to site vpn between the two locations using a pair of cisco 851’s. I got it working but I ran in to a problem where the name of their active directory domain is company-xyz.com and it turns out that the it is a real web site online that they don’t own.
So from the remote location if I ping by name I get a response from a real world IP instead of an internal host on the network.
My question is to change the active directory domain from company-xyz.com to .local do I have to go through the whole directory rename proceedure with a second 2003 member server?
