I want to add another DC on my domain - Windows 2003 AD ..  I ran dcpromo and is now an additional domain controller .. now my question is .. I'm moving this server to another office .. will I run into any issues if I change the IP address of this server to reflect the IP's on my other office. It will use the same DNS and Subnet.
Thanks

No, you should not get any trouble. Only don't forget to change the gateway address, too.

When you change the address, check your DNS zones to make sure no A records exist for the old address.

DNS is the crucial thing here....make sure to run a dcdiag when complete....

If any PC's or services were connecting to this server using the IP address as opposed to the DNS name, then of course those PC's and Services will have problems.
