Renaming publishing points

Renaming a publishing point assigns a new unique identifier to the publishing point. When naming a publishing point, you should avoid using names that are identical to those of directories or subdirectories on the Windows Media server. A publishing point with the same name as a directory may interfere with another publishing point that sources from that directory.

The characters <>\?%&'#"{}|^[]* are reserved and cannot be used in the publishing point name.

The name is not case-sensitive.

Existing announcements on the publishing point will not work after you rename it. You need to create a new announcement for the renamed publishing point. For more information, see Announcing your content to users.
