Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It is possible. And it will not affect the setup of the other machines. But it might impact your applications if they are set to use the name.

You would also have problems if the host is part of a failover cluster. And you will need to also rediscover the host and add it to the database in SCVMM
