Changing ip address of GroupWise server

Posted on 2001-09-06

I have a GroupWise server with a public address assigned to it.  I need to change this to a private address and then do NAT on my firewall.  Is there anything I need to be aware of when I do this?  The DNS record will remain the same since I will do a one-to-one NAT mapping for the server.  But will the server freak out if I change the ip?

one thing - your GroupWise clients are going to get pissy when they can no longer find the previous IP address...

What other GroupWise services besides the POA/MTA and ADA are running on the NetWare server?  Is there a GWIA or API gateway installed?

Do your client run Client server or directaccess (If you use directacces, start using client server.)
A nice thing to do (if it not already is done) is to create a record in the DNS that is called ngwnameserver and point that to GRpwiseServer IP-address.
If no ip-address is given to the client it will automaticly look for ngwnameserver.
