    I have single SBS 2003 DC server which runs DNS, DHCP, WINS and Exchange

    The ip address of the current SBS DC is similar to and needs to
    be changed to

    I need to change the IP address of the server, but need to know what else
    needs to be changed for continued operation.

    I know i need to change the dhcp scope and change the IP printers (only a
    few workstation and a couple of printers)

    Do i need to change any DNS entries, global catalogue etc.

    What about exchange and mx records....i believe these are being held on the
    isp dns

    Can you help

    Regards Ray

    Whoaaaa.... What on earth requires you to change your server internal IP
    ?????????????? The server is the BOSS, surely what ever it is can be

    Please elaborate why and maybe can offer alternative... I would be concerned
    something needs to require me to change the Boss seetings...

    In answer to your question re running internet connection wizard would be
    the last thing to do.... but seriously... Why ?

  3. To change the internal IP, open the Server Mgmt Console and go to the
    Internet and E-mail page. Click "Change Server IP Address" and let that do
    the whole thing. It doesn't look like a wizard, but it will configure DNS,
    DHCP, WINS, etc. - click the ? and then click somewhere in the window to
    open the Help topic, which will describe everything it changes.

    You mention MX records, etc. - you're looking to change the internal IP,
    right? So you don't have to change any records relating to external DNS
    (those that are hosted at the ISP).

    As is often pointed out, if a VPN is in use or expected to be,
    whether to SBS or site-to-site, the LAN subnet must be different
    from all other connected subnets. This makes 192.168.0. and .1.
    poor choices, along with anything else that a commonly-used
    router will default to. I would assume that the OP has
    discovered this, and needs to change the LAN.

    Ideally one might change all the potential remote routers, but
    this may not be trivial for some users, and to use your analogy,
    one of those users might well be the boss. An SBS might be a big
    fish in its little pool of XP workstations, but it doesn't rate
    much among management, only slightly higher than the IT staff.

    I know of a situation where a company signed up to a 'business'
    broadband deal, 12 months minimum, and were given a router with
    a *fixed* LAN IP address. No option at all but to reconfigure
    the network if they wanted to avoid throwing away the money.

    their is a new vpn/firewall going in, but we have been directed to make
    change and firewall guys will do the rest....just need to know the order in
    which to get the only DC talking again....

    An idea from above which i do not know reason behind it, but need to make
    the change.
