In one of our production databases a prior DBA made a typo when creating a new file group, does anyone know of any "issues" from renaming it? Specifically, does anything happen behind the scenes to the objects stored in the files attached to that file group? In my testing on a small dev server, I didn't notice anything out of sorts, but wanted to ask the group before actually running the code below on a larger system:
ALTER DATABASE [Sandbox]
MODIFY FILEGROUP NCIindexes NAME =NCIndexes

The fact that there is an ALTER statement to achieve this should assure you it's a supported action ;-)
Internally within the system, filegroups are referenced by their allocated id "data_space_id" and not their name, as shown below

Thanks Perry. I realize it was supported, just wanted to make certain there was no "behind the scenes" issues with the rename. Appreciate the assurance!
