If you change the computer name on an Exchange 2K server will it operate normally under the new name? Assuming I point all of the Exchange services on the MAPI setups at the new name?
I would like to run a migration. I have a custom Office 2k MSI that points Outlook at my current Exchange 5.5 server. I would like to setup coexistance, test the new server then one weekend migrate all mailboxes then rename my Exchange 2k server with the 5.5 server name.

Having two Exchange servers running in an operation my size is exactly what I wanted to avoid. We need to keep the number of servers down because of limited egineering staff, rack space, backup window, power requirments, etc.....
