I am relocating my SBS 2003 server to a new office location.  This will of course change the IP addresses that are being used.  What changes do I need to make on the server (exchange, OWA, DNS, etc) for this?  I had used all wizrds with the initial setup of the server and am unsure what now needs to be changed.  I will of course make the appropriate changes on GoDaddy for my MX records.

If you are relocating there is no need to change your local IP addresses so the only things you would need to change are any A records you have that are pointing to your external IP address (your ISP should be able to tell you this)

This will include your MX record and PTR records for Reverse DNS if using.

If you are changing ISP's your external DNS may change and you might want to re-run the Connect to the Internet wizard in Server Manager once you have everything how it should be and have all the details just to update your external connection details

So I can rerun the Connect to Internet Wizard?  Ok.

But what about in Exchange or OWA?  Do I need to change anything.  As you said, the Public IP and the DNS of our old ISP will change.

Do I need to do anything in the DNS manager of the server?

If you run the Connect to the Internet Wizard it will do all the changes for you.

It will update your DNS server details and your SMTP forwarding details, you just need to have all the information from your ISP.

If you are changing ISP and your ISP also host your domain name then you will need to ask your new ISP to update all DNS records that point to your old IP address this should be fairly straight forward.
