I need to change the IP address of a domain controler in active directory. Will there be any implications to this action or can I just simply change the IP address. The current  IP address and the new IP address are in the same range. For Example( 122.110.5.5 would be changing to 122.110.5.10)

Make sure you update your dns record as well.

Have you tried it yet?  I don't think you can change the IP of a DC.  I was thinking you had to demote it, change the IP, then re-promote it to a DC again.

This is possible without too much disruption, I've done it a few times. But as ewtaylor mentions, DNS records need updating. Also, if you're running WINS, check the database after a reboot.
