AD question.

If a site is readdressed, does the information get auto-updated in sites & services? (site/subnet info)??

No.

You'll have to delete and recreate the affected subnet.

You'll also need to clean out DNS of all the retired IP addresses and have the servers re-register.

What are the implications if that's not done...at least not right away?

Oh man!  Howdy Neil.  I didn't even look at who posted this - sorry man!

Well...authentication in that site will be incorrectly routed, replication will fail, and FRS (DFS-wise) will stop directing clients to the proper server (if you use it there).

Good evening sir...good to have someone so experienced helping me here.
In this site, the server is only a FnP - the user's should authenticate off-site.  We're not using DFS (yet).  So by replication, you mean policies, correct?  And if there are no new policies, would this be a big deal?
Trying to determine if someone needs to be pulled in to clean this up (my area doesn't do the AD management)

If there is no DC present onsite, then changing the subnet in AD S&S isn't as critical.  It does, however, assist clients in finding domain services much easier if the subnet jives with the site it's married to.

In your case, I think you'll have some time to fix this.
