The SID for the groups is actually used and this is not changed by the server rename so you don't have to rename the groups.
Thanks, that is good to know.
But if I change it, will it affect anything, do those group name exist somewhere on the server, like registry etc. I checked they are not in security- login.
Because we often have the situations like this - to rename servers, and leave the old computer names in windows group look unclean and confusing.
But I wonder if I change them by replace the string of old computer name with new computer name in the windows group name, will it affect anything?
