Changing Crystal Enterprise 9 server from workgroup to domain

Hi,

I have an MS Windows 2000 Server server that is running Crystal Enterprise 9 deploying about 200 Crystal Reports 9 reports. Due to some limitations placed upon us this was set up as a stand-alone workgroup server and CE9 was installed using the IP address of the server as its identity.

Due to corporate infrastructure changes we have to subsume this server into a domain and change its IP address which will obviously invalidate the CE9 installation. I know that I must change the server details in all of the services accessed via the Enterprise Manager console but is there anywhere else that I need to change it to ensure that CE9 continues to function? Also, are there any changes or rebuilds that I need to perform?

Thanks for the help guys but unfortunately following Crystals instructions raised a plethora of bugs in Crystal Enterprise 9 htat ended up killing the installation altogether and I had to re-install and re-publish/ configure as the only solution.

The bugs were associated with re-creating the various servers in the CMC so that once the previous servers had been removed the new ones could not be created correctly.

Cheers
