If I decide I want to change the Web Adaptor name, is it as simple as going to the Web Adapter tab in the Server Manager and clicking unregister?

And then would I just rerun the Web Adaptor install and choose a different name?

Or what is the proper way of changing Web Adaptor names?

Check out the ESRI Resources page: About the ArcGIS Web Adaptor to get all the information you need.

It looks like you can name it anything you want, as long as that name isn't already in use somewhere else.
