Sharepoint domain change

For those of you that use Microsoft Sharepoint Portal server. Here is a quick piece of advice if you need to change the domain the server is on. Follow this map:

1. Back up all your content databases
2. Completely uninstall Sharepoint Portal Server from the server
3. Change the domain
4. Re-install Sharepoint Portal Server
5. Import your content databases

Trust me, if you just move the servers domain with out doing this. You will probably end up having to completely reinstall the OS. Since when I tried you couldn’t repair or uninstall Sharepoint because it complained about everything. Take a little time and do it right, and learn from my mistake.
