Windows 2003 SBS servername change

Theodosios asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hi Everyone, quick question:

I'm installing a second Windows 2003 SBS server for a server migration of an existing SBS server.  I'm going to use Swing Migration to do the migration.

Once I install the new server (which by default becomes the DC), and do the migration, can I change the servername later?  It needs to have the same name as the old one, but obviously can't have the same name on the netowrk during the migration.
