Issues with renaming a Windows Server?

Hi
I wish to rename a Windows Server, which is a member server in a domain. Should this cause any problems? Anything in particular I should look out for?
Thanks

If this is just a member server thn there shoulf be no issues appart from the fact that you may need to chnage some client mappings

KCTS is correct, If any user are mapped to printers or shares on this server they will loose their mapping and have to be re-mapped. The rename will not affect AD.
