Hi Experts, I look after a medium size network of 100 users and I need to change the IP addressing used throughout the network from 192.168.0... to 192.168.16.... This needs to be done as we are more and more oftern running into the issue of remote workers being on the same ip addrerss range, this is causing issues with our vpn.

What are the key things which need to be changed on a server 2003 domain controller (active directory, dhcp, dns)

Many thanks

If everything is set up to use DHCP, you just need to create a new IP pool for the new network, and remove the old one. AD and DNS (which are connected together) should rebuild itself as soon as you have changed the server address.
