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

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.
