    Have a file server at a remote site that, due to an organizational
    consolidation, "MUST" be renamed. This server is in an active DFS
    replication schema. How much damage will it cause to rename it? Thanks in
    advance.

    Just off the top of my head, not knowing what role the server plays in your
    DFS replication, you could just delete the replication group the server is
    in (clean up the DFSRPrivate folders on each member) rename the server and
    recreate the replication group.
