Our network is setup using Windows Small Business Server I have the printers configured using a certain range of IP addresses. Can you just move a printer from one port to another in the same building without reconfiguring IP addresses? We are using a Switched Ethernet Network.

Yes; you can move the printers and they should maintain their IP address settings. The only way I can see that they wouldn't is if the printers are set up to use DHCP to get an IP address; in that case, they may well not renew in time and get a new (and different) IP.
