Chaning the IP Address of our SBS 2000 server, what should I do?
Posted on 2007-08-02
I have a Windows 2000 Small Business Server that we are preparing to upgrade to SBS 2003 but not yet.
We are implementing a VOIP solution which due to the size of the company hosting the soluition we are required to change our IP Address from 10.0.0.x to 10.192.96.x on the internal network interface card, I will also have to change the DHCP scope and settings for our SBS Domain to match that of what they sent me. The domain can stay the same but the IP's must change.
I know that with SBS 2003 they fixed the problems that occur with changing the IP address on the SBS server after it has been using and was configured with something completely different.
Is there a article that I can read regarding this process and what is required for the IP change on the server? Do I just need to change it then go in and Alter DNS settings and the current DHCP scope?
Any links to Microsoft Articles that are non-SBS 2003 related having to do with changing the IP on a SBS 2000 box would be SINCERELY appreciated.
If after the IP is changed, if I will experience issues, please let me know what I should expect to have to do to fix those issues. Any time saving tips you can supply would be much appreciated as well.
