Updated procedure to rename Exchange single label domains

In a recent post, Microsoft announced that Exchange 2007 SP1 will be re-released to enable Administrators to install the service pack without having to rename their single-label domains*. Microsoft supports single-label domain names for Exchange 2007 SP1 but recommends that organizations use fully qualified domain names. Moving forward, Microsoft will no longer support single-label domain names.

* Single-label domain names are names that do not contain a dot such as root instead of fqdn.com.
