Just wondering if you can rename a live store ? I did this on one store with no ill effect that I can see however I dont know what complications this could cause down the road due to the fact that the database names remain the same. So how would I match up the database name with the new store gui name?

Anyone have advice?

Right I can rename the store but when I try and rename the associated database it says "cannot be found"

How would I rename the database and make it work and what complications could a different database name compared to the store name be?

Thanks

You want to rename the physical files?
That you cannot do. Create a new one with the name that you want and use move mailbox is the safest thing.
You might get away with "moving" the database. If you move the database in the wizard I am sure that it prompts you for a file name, which you can then enter a different name for the new location. Exchange will then update itself correctly.
