For various reasons I need to move the internal address range of my SBS server.  There appear to be no documented howtos or instructions anywhere.  I was wondering if anyone has successfullly done this?

My current thought is to change the ip address and run the network setup wizard again.  I think this has a low chance of success but...  Well don't want to reinstall and migrate my data again.

    This should not be much of a problem at all.  But can you explain the IP Addresses you currently use for your server AND clients.  And the ones you WANT to use for your server and clients?

    You may have to update DNS, but overally, this should a relatively simple and painless process.

    Ah it is the wizard labeled change ip address.  I assumed it was the external address they where referencing there.  Found it in MS help.
