 Hi,

I have to change the whole ip address scheme for the office. I will also change the static ip address of the dc. Are there any tips/tricks about this issue? Should I follow steps from a document. Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards.

Here's a couple of guides:

(Note when it says Delete your type A records, it means for that server only - that IP address only).

after the ip change is complete I just have to change/control host type entries under my dns zone? I have simulated the process on virtual machine and discovered that after the ip address is changed a host entry is created automatically under dns zone. I just delete the old entry. Is that ok? thanks.
