I don't believe this is supported. I've heard of "dirty" ways to do it but I'd never try it with a production server. I'd load a new server up in the same organization/site and use the "move mailbox" option to move the users over. Exchange 5.5 is strongly tied to the server name (hince, why you have to restore it to a server with the same name when doing DR).

Andy's right, it's not supported. Even the Move Server Wizard leaves the server name the same. The Directory on the server is uniquely tied into the name of the server; you basically have to deinstall Exchange, rename the server, and then reinstall again.
