  • You can rename the groups that were created when FIM was installed (which I assume to be local, not domain) without issue as the object SID will not be affected. If you want to create brand new (e.g. domain) groups, then you need to run the FIM Installation again and point at the new groups.

  • Anil,

    I believe you should not think of renaming any of these mentioned groups. If you make any change to any of these groups, there is a possibility that you end up with doing installation of FIM again.

    For details of these groups please refer to the link :
