Rename a SBS server after setup
Posted on 2006-04-20
I have just finished setting up SBS and everyting that goes with it, including connecting the XP workstations and programs for a client of mine. Now, after it's all wraped up and I'm ready to invoice, the client is complaining about the servers name.
The domain name is fine, but he does not like his server name. I can think of a few things that would be affected by this and what it would involve, but my edjucated guess is far from an impact study. Has anyone ever done something similar ? Appart from shared resources pointing to a UNC name that has changed, what else might malfunction ? Is there a procedure for doing something like this ? All advice welcome.
Since this is a open ended question, short answer wont get good grades unless the short answer is a url to a long writeup on the subject.
