renaming cluster server


I need to rename the server for each node this week and also Virtual which has it own IP. The virtual is where the user need to access the file directory that is stored in the cluster server in Server 1 or 2.

Server 1 = 192.168.xx.x1
Server 2 = 192.168.xx.x2
Virtual    = 192.168.xx.x3

I assume i just rename Server 1 and 2 normally like i rename a computer? or is it not that simple? How do i rename the Virtual? I couldn't see where i need to change this. thanks

When i say rename the server i mean like Server.domain.local

Windows 2003 Server R2

The Nodes:
-remove Server 1 from cluster
-rename Server 1 to ServerA
-Add ServerA to cluster
-Move resources to ServerA
-Remove Server2 from cluster
-Rename Server2 to ServerB
-Add ServerB to Cluster

Thee Visrtual:
1. Open Cluster Administrator.
2. In the console tree, click the cluster you want to rename.
3. On the File menu, click Rename.
4. Type the new name for the cluster next to its icon.

HI x-men

Currently the resources is on ServerB
Once i renamed ServerA and add this back to cluster, how do i move the resources from ServerB to ServerA so i can begin renaming ServerB
