I think you misunderstand what I was trying to say, If you change the
domain name, you also need to change the DNS domain, the REALM is the
same as the DNS domain, but in uppercase.
As I said, this is very new and I haven't had to use it yet, but, from
my understanding, if your dns domain is samdom.example.com and you
rename the domain, every instance of 'samdom', 'example' and 'com' will
get changed to match your new name.

That is joining the domain, but if your clients get their DNS domain
via DHCP and you rename the domain, everything should match and you
probably wont have to rejoin, but I don't really know.
