Installing new 2003 domain controller Changing name but keeping same IP Address FSMO server

I am installing a new FSMO holder (holds all 5 roles) for our domain. We have 6 domain controllers in different branches. The new FSMO dc that i am installing will be a different name but will keep the same IP address. Can i get some assistance with what i may have to do to alleviate any replication or dns issues that i may encounter.

Why not just give it a different IP?

Though frankly, I'd be cautiously optimistic this wouldn't be a problem - I just redid my entire office network (not many systems, but several servers) and found no ill affects.

It's an option, however, i was trying to think of a way that would let us keep a good deal of documentation the same and also because we have some http monitoring and router ip's staticed with that IP for some sofware. I imagine there would be the risk of dns or replication issues if we were to leave the IP the same and perhaps lead to some orphaned objects, etc. in Active Directory.

i mistakenly set this question up so the points are refunded back to me. I want all the points (250) to be awarded according to the notice. Thanks.
