If its different subnet,change the network settings to assign automtically Ip or change appropraitely.Remember if this also run dns then the primary dns should be same as the IP address of the DC.Also might need to change in ADsites and service assuming that you are assigning IP address from new subnet.

For one I would try to keep the internal IP number the same (if you are not using dhcp). If there are some client computers connecting to this IP instead of the DNS, they would fail.

Other than that I can't really think of anything a.t.m.. I'll give it some further thought though..

The servers will not care about their physical location - assuming you are not changing their IP addresses, or domain membership - shut down the exchange server, wait for it to turn off, shut down the dc - move them, turn on the DC, wait till the login screen, turn on the Exchange server.
