"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi osei gunthorpe,
Do you mean you ran command "setup.exe /preparead /organizationname:<>" ?
If yes you dont need to worry about that. That is only used by exchange admin. i.e. Only in the backend.
This will not make difference on user side even if you change.

If not please elaborate.
It will not make any issues as it is not used anywhere in administration and user interface
However I believe you cannot change as it gets hard coded and propagated all along
Do not try to change it or it will break exchange functionality some how

Yes, as Mahesh said don't try to change it.

If you still need for cosmetics, then the only way is to decommission that new exchange server and clear org details.

Agree with the above comments. Your only option is to uninstall Exchange and run setup with new name
setup.exe /preparead /organizationname:new-org-name.

But you are wasting your time just for changing name with no difference in functionality.
