One thing to check...

If you have other scripts and utilities, e.g. .bat, .cmd, .vbs, .exe, that are dependent on the old server name, you'll need to update those. You may need to check the task scheduler on the old server for those scripts.

If you don't already have a quick way to find those scripts, you can use notepad++ feature "Find in files" to search various folders for the old server name.

Double-check your logon scripts for dependencies, also.

Also... do users use various scripts during day-to-day production?
