Joining vSphere to New AD Domain After Migration from 6.0 U1 to 6.5U1

We are planning a migration from existing vSphere 6.0 U1b environment which is consist of an external PSC, a Windows 2012 R2 Data Center vCenter with External SQL 2014 enterprise on different 2012R2 Data center edition which all currently joining to the domain including ESXi. As we are planning upgrade our vSphere 6.0 u1b environment to 6.5U1 and join the new Active Directory domain whether it will impact any thing when we leave the existing domain ? Can I have some best practice or document for leaving the existing AD domain and join new AD domain ?

This will affect all users from that domain that use the environment.  It will also affect and users used to run services on the Windows machines. Depending on how SQL was installed, this could cause some outages, the same with the VC if it is using domain users to run the services.
