The only way I have come up so far to rename the domain is by
re-provisioning Samba using the samba-tool utility. This, however, requires
to remove the sam configuration file and the entire database file.

This is definitely not very convenient as all the objects including the
users, groups, and GPOs and their links will be destroyed.

My question:

Is there a better way to rename the Samba4 domain name provisioned once
with active directory role without losing the objects and GPOs?
