Renaming a DHCP server


I need to rename a Windows 2003 DHCP server and I'm wondering before I do it, are there any problems or potential problems with doing so?

I don't think so.

DHCP requests are done via IP.  The closest server responds with the necessary details.  The name of the server does not matter at all.

No, renaming your DHCP server will have no effect on it's functionality.

IP addresses are attained by sending a request to the entire network. The DHCP server will see this request and reply accordingly.

If the only installed role on the server DHCP, you can rename it safely... just check server manager for installed roles before renaming..
