Changing ip address of GroupWise server

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?

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.
What version of Netware are you running Groupwise on?
Any other groupwise servers in the Groupwise domain or any external GW system connected?

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?
