Hi, is there anyone that can help me with this task.

 

We have setup a Surface Hub in a test environment but like all test, it became a production device and now I need to rename the Surface Hub so that the name correspond with the room it is in.

 

The problem is that I do not want to lose the meeting that people already book for the Hub.

 

My knowledge of the Lync/Skye and Exchnage task that would be required is limited but I'll understad what to do.

 

Thank you all!

 

Mat

Renaming the device itself should not have any impact.
Also renaming the account in AD/Exchange/Skype also should not really cause any impact as it would retain all existing meetings.
