Change machine name after installing Sharepoint

I have tried only on a standalone machine. Follow the steps to sort out the issue


  1. Change alternate access mappings in Central Administration
    1. Central Administration > Operations > Alternate access Mappings
    2. Edit each mapping so that it reflects your new server name
      1. Ensure port numbers are the same
  2. Use stsadm renameserver operation
    1. stsadm -o renameserver -newservername  -oldservername  
  3. Rename Server
    1. My Computer > Properties > Computer Name (tab) > Change (button)
    2. Type in new name of server
    3. Reboot server
