The Lotus Notes clients have the error, "Cannot connect to server," even though the IP address and name of the server is correct. There is no error per se on the server. The database on the server is still configured with remprod.corp information; knowing where to change all that information is the key piece. This is why we need a technical resource that knows something about the "nuts and bolts" of moving servers between domains.
I am not sure what you are asking for here, but if it is a domain migration, there are tools available from places like Binary Tree to help you. Also, you could look into bringing in a firm to assist you. Migrating domains is a very large and complex task that differs for every infrastructure.
