Changing domain name on Domino servers

Our company recently changed names and therefore I have to now change the domain name on the Domino servers. What is the best way of going about it? There are a couple of applications that work with the Name and Address book of the server and look for the server ID file when certain agents run. The servers are running R5.04.
Changing domains is a difficult task, and it requires very careful planning. I always strongly suggest bringing up a new server in the new domain, and then test all of your mail routing, replication, applications, etc. thoroughly. Once you are satisfied with the tests, you can begin to migrate your servers and people to the new domain. You will need to issue new ID files to everyone. I don?t like recertifying people to the new domain. This leaves the old certificates in their ID, which could be a backdoor to the old system.
