We have a windows server which will be renamed shortly. It has SQL Server 2008 R2 and IIS v7.5 installed. After the server is renamed, my next step would be to drop and add servername via SSMS to match the new server name. I'm not that worried about this.

My concern is IIS v7.5. Do I have any concerns when renaming the server name or SQL Server name? My level of expertise with IIS is poor. Will the SQL Server rename created problems? If so what steps should be employed to resolve.

Any comments / URLs would be appreciated. Thank you.

Firstly you should audit the IIS application if possible. How does it know the database connection string to use? Common ways to store this are in registry keys or inside the web.config file.

If the application is too much of a black box: An approach commonly used by Sharepoint consultants is to alias the SQL server.

Hi - this is definitely do-able.
The user/service accounts should be ok (obviously) so you shouldn't get permission problems.
Need to check for SSL certs that reference the old servername. (This is visible through the IIS interface).

Also consider using appcmd to export the current site and then re-import it after the rename if things don't work.
