It is never supported to change the name of an exchange server.
Therefore, installing in a child domain and doing move mailbox, then removing the old server is the proper method.

I have Exchange 2003 installed in a parent domain and want to move the server to a child domain…. Do I need to install the exchange on a server in the child domain and move the mailboxes or is there another way of handling this?
Thanks for your help.
