Situation:

Zentyal-based domain "office.oldcompany.co.uk", where "office" is a subdomain of an existing internet domain that is in use and registered to us.

The company rebranded and we now also have a new registered internet domain "newcompany.com".

What should we do now?

A) Rename the zentyal domain to "office.newcompany.com"? (And would this imply creating new users and/or rejoining all machines to the new domain name?)

B) Simply add aliases to the Zentyal DNs so that say "pc1" has an alias of "pc1.office.newcompany.com"? (This should not require major changes)

We only use the "office" Zentyal domain for our internal machines - any service we'd need to run on the internet would be a "somethingelse.company.com" and would not impact Zentyal configuration.
