As per new July 2010 Technet document,

The domain rename operation is not supported in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange Server 2010. Domain Name System (DNS) domain rename is supported in Exchange Server 2003. However, renaming of the NetBIOS domain name is not supported in any version of Exchange Server. Other non-Microsoft applications might also not support domain rename.

source: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816631(WS.10).aspx

Is the article applicable only to windows 2008 AD only ?.

We are having teh requirement to rename NETBIOS name in windows 2003 AD with Exchagne 2003 ? is this possible ?

It used to be supported I guess, in 2003 days. Otherwise, there wouldn't be an article for the same in msexchange.org

And most of the links provided at the end of the msexchange.org article doesn't exist now!

From KB: 891370

You receive an error message when Rendom.exe changes the DNS or NetBIOS name of a domain in Windows Server 2003

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891370

" If you run Rendom.exe to change the DNS or NetBIOS name of a domain, you receive the following error message:

Found Exchange Server in the forest. Domain rename is supported only if Exchange Server version is Exchange 2003 SP1 and above."

So seems like it is supported in windows 2003 AD.
