change domain name on sbs 2011? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    One company CompanyA has a sbs server, domain name is companya.com.

    The companyA has been sold to another company (companyb), and the companyb has its own hardware, and will host companyA.com on the hardware of  companyb.

    The sbs server and workstations of companyA will be sold/given to companyC.

    Is it possible, on the sbs server of companya,  to rename companya.com to companyC.com on the sbs server 2011 (to avoid reinstalling server and computers) from scratch?

    If yes:

    * will the mailboxes be lost?

    * do I have to reinstall client workstations (win 7 pro 64 bits) or just join the new domain?
