Hi Monika,
Renaming the Exchange server is a very risky thing to do. Exchange is
Active directory integrated application, and there are many AD
Configuration objects created which relate to the Exchange server by
name. Plus, there are many registry keys which depend on the server
name. If you rename the server, your server will fail to start up the
Exchange services. And users wont be able to access the server.
So, don't do it :)

Hi all,

When bringing the Exchange organization into
production, would it cause problems if I change the Front-End 
server name and IP address? I have Exchange 2003 Enterprise, and all
involved servers are running Win 2003 Server Enterprise. This is a brand

new Exchange deployment.
