Change IP address of OCS 2007 server

We have a standard edition OCS 2007 server running on Windows Server 2003. It is only providing basic messenger functionality to users via office communicator.

We are moving to a new site soon and the server IP address will have to change. Is there a recommended way of doing this or is it just a simple IP address change and DNS record update?

The server name will not be changing.

    unless you have configured your clients to go directly to the IP (cant think of why you would, but hey...) no, its just an IP change and update the DNS record.
    If you do have additional servers, such as mediation, you will also need to update those details
