NO.

Constraints, Indexes atc. can be only droped and recreated.

If you want to seve time during recreation use WITH NOCHECK. It'll skip existing records checking.

That's what I thought...
Although in Enterprise manager you can rename a PK or FK constraint or an index through the manage relationships button.   Although the one I want to change is a Default constraint which doesn't show up on the list.

Be avare that if you rename something in EM it can result in drop/create and sometimes to create/copy/drop operation. This can have big impact on your server performance if done in "bad" moment.
