Hello,Yes you may rename a switch non-disruptively.  Example:rtp9513-1-23A-01# conf tEnter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.rtp9513-1-23A-01(config)# switchname Test-NameTest-Name(config)# switchname rtp9513-1-23A-01rtp9513-1-23A-01(config)# exitrtp9513-1-23A-01# copy run start[########################################] 100%rtp9513-1-23A-01# Thanks,Nikhil

Be advised that renaming a switch does generate an RSCN, unless the switch is configured to not do so.  By design, the RSCN being generated should cause no impact.
