Will renaming an OU that an Exchange server is in cause Exchange problems?

I have a couple Exchange servers in an OU

Is it safe to rename the "AutoUpdate1" OU to something else? I wanted to name it to "Exchange 2010", based off their version, respectively.

I cannot recall if that would cause any problems...

Exchange doesn't care about the OU, so rename away.

Ok, and with that I guess I could move the Exchange server computer objected to a different OU as well??

Yes you can also move the Exchange Computer Objects to different OU's. This is so that if you have specific requirements for Policies that need to be applied to these Exchange servers that they can get the GPOs applied.
