Exchange Domain Controller Configuration

We are considering changing a server name when replacing and upgrading one of our current domain controllers. This machine is currently selected as the "configuration domain controller" within exchange. It appears that you can click on the box and type in a new server name. Has anyone out there actually done this? If so, is making this change as simple as what it appears to be?

Also, we may want to set this so no single DC is used.

Is there a downside to not using a specified domain controller?

Not really.. I'd actually recommend not pointing to a single one.
