we are a healthcare organization and just merged with another practice.   Consequently we are changing our domain name which means I have to change our AD domain name.  I have a Windows Server 2016 DC and a Windows 2008 R2 DC.   If I change the name on the Windows Server 2016 will it replicate to the Windows 2008 DC or will I have to manually change that one as well?  Any help would be greatly appreciated

Bruce
