I have a magento single store website with multiple store views. Sometimes I see attributes values of products like status are not set on default so generate confusion between store views. Are there possible problems if I change the scope of the attribute "status" from Website to Global? Thanks

It's possible, but you will have to remove existing website specific entries in the attribute value tables manually otherwise they'll just stay there and keep being used.

You can use a query like this (make a backup first!)

DELETE FROM catalog_product_entity_int WHERE store_id > 0 and attribute_id = 4711

Replace 4711 with the attribute id and int with the value type. You can look up both in the eav_attributes table.
