The short: We have a Windows Server 2008 computer that needs a name change. How much trouble will this cause for the domain?
The Long: At a charity that refurbishes computers for people with low incomes, someone installed a server with Windows Server 2008 and made it a domain (a workgroup would have been fine for our needs). He named the server "server". We use installation CDs that need to access a different server that was also called "server" that has our install information. (Putting those programs in the new server caused problems and the install CD wouldn't work). So, the "easy" fix for our install CDs is to change the Windows Server 2008's name to something else, like server3.
Thanks for any information you can give me.
