  1. All depends on what that system was setup to run. For example if that system is meant to backup user files with a script then by changing the name youre going to break the script, and any scripts that use that specific UNC. Also it might be a problem if the system if part of a domain. Since Active Directory uses the computer unique id aka SID to allow specify operations for those systems.
