    You can change the server name any time you like, as long as you login to the server with domain admin privileges. You change the name on the computer and it automatically changes the name in AD.
    Make sure your other machines do not reference the server by name, or that they change the reference after the name change. This is most likely to occur when you map drives.

    cheers, Paul
