Rename Web Application

By James|December 27, 2011|

Let's say you build out your portal and later realize that you've fat fingered a web application name.  How do you correct this?!  With SharePoint 2010 and PowerShell, this is all it takes:

$wa=Get-SPWebApplication | where {$_.Name -match "Existing Web App Name"}
$wa.Name="New Web App Name"
$wa.Update()

Too easy!
