Can I setup a Domain Controller at a branch then move it to the main site and change it's IP?

HI.

I need to setup a Domain Controller at a branch office.  I then need to get it running at the main site.  The Branch office and Main site have different IP subnets.

Can I set up the DC and then, when it's at the main office, change it's IP to one on the main office subnet?

You will also need to make sure any DNS forwarders you have set up get changed as required.

Thanks Guys.  Does it matter wether I change the IP before I plug it into the Main office network, or should I do it after?
