Need to rename the hostname of our SQL Clone VM

Question: We would like to rename the Windows VM host name of our SQL clone server. 
Does anyone know if this will cause issues for the Web Server? Windows IIS handles a rename fine so hopefully this is not an issue. Thanks

    I've done a quick test, and everything seems to work fine after the rename.

    If you run into any issues, just let us know, and we'll take a deeper look for you.

    Hi @Joe77

    Just want to remind you that you may need to manually update column MachineName and FriendlyMachineName in table dbo.Agents of the SQLClone_Config database. Please make sure you backup the database before any manual alteration.
    Kind regards
