Will renaming a Folder in the Network impacts user access

Will renaming a Folder in the Network impacts user access

I have a folder in the network. I assigned permissions to Active Directory Groups.
I would like to rename the Folder. I wonder if this will disconnect Users that already have permissions to it.

Renaming it does not alter the NTFS permissions.  If it's shared at that folder point, then you would have to recreate the share and the share permissions would need to be redefined.  If users have documents open or the folder itself open, Windows may not let you rename it until everyone is out of it.
