Hi Darwin,
It has been many years since I hit this problem so I can't be specific,
but maybe I can point you in the right direction.
My similar problem involved an invalid character in a site name ("_").
It was anything but simple to fix, but can be done if you follow
specific steps. You will need to get SPECIFIC info from technet, but
basically this is the steps I took:
Stop replication
Stop affected server's exchange services
Edit metabase to modify name
Restart services
Restart replication
I think my biggest problem was the replication of the site name back to
the problem server; the others sites refused to believe I had changed
its name. There is several articles that deal with this problem but one
was the key, and it was hard to find.
Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Hi all?
Last Saturday I began an Upgrade from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2K for a
client. The server were up to Sp3 on W2K and SP4 on Exchange, everything
was running smooth until I insert the Exchange 2K CD for the upgrade.
The thing was that the upgrade can not be done because the name of the
organization contains invalid characters; the character was an ?&? in
the middle of the name. The message told me that I have to change the
name of the organization thru the Admin console for Exchange 5.5.
I have tried everything to do it, but without success. Can anyone point
me in the correct direction to solve my upgrade.?
