Update Windows Logins Domain Rename

I have a server running MS Project Server 2003 and we'll be renaming domains.
Now their are several Windows Accounts defined in the security tables with
the old domain. How can I update those accounts with the new domain once we
switch. I'm guessing Active Directory Synch???

Rename,
You will probably get a better response if you post to our sister
newsgroup, microsoft.public.project.server. This newsgroup is dedicated
to the stand alone version of Project.

Hey there ,

This is not a very clear question but ill try my best. If you rename a
domain a lot of things will be impacted:

1. DNS -- used for resolving names - So when u type in http://projectserver/pwa
it uses dns to resolve that name to ip addy ie 196.10.11.12
2. SQL -- SQL uses a domain authenticated account to run and start the
project service. So once the domain is renamed expect a total
standstill of your project environment.
3. IIS -- IIS is also dependant on Domain / system accounts. So domain
is renamed kaboom goes IIS
4. WSS/Sharepoint / MOSS -- Once again uses domain accounts to start
up , so new domain , no working wss/sharepoint/moss. I suggest you
backup all your db's including the MOSS / wss / sharepoint one's. Then
give it a go let them rename ?? the domain. But i can almost guarentee
this is going to have to be a re - install

Hope that sheds some light
