Sounds like you might have a single label domain name(domain vs.

Single label domain names are a problem with Win2k SP4, XP Pro and Win2k3,

As Kevin has already pointed out, it does sound like the single label domain issue discussed in "300684 Information About Configuring Windows 2000 for
Domains With Single-Label ".

Unfortunatly, you cannot rename a Win2k Domain. However if it is still in
mixed mode, because an NT4 domain can be renamed, you can add an NT4 BDC,
promote it to a PDC and upgrade it to Win2k. It is a lot of work but it can
be done.
If you demote your current DC then promote it to change the domain name you
will lose user and computer accounts.
