You need to build a brand new farm with new service accounts, then perform a data migration (i.e. content database/service app database backup/restore, full farm backup, etc.).

It is not supported to migrate virtual machines running SharePoint between domains.

  • Hi Trevor thanks for the suggestions , are there any documentations online on how to approach on this.
