Hey guys -
We are replacing an aging domain member server with a new server this weekend.
Any advice/best practices/comments out there for this?
We have already pre-built the new server with a temporary name and temporary IP, and joined it to the domain.
For the sake of this discussion:
OLDSERVER Name: Server1
OLDServer IP: 192.168.1.115
NEWServer Name: Server1a
NewServer IP: 192.168.1.215
I am assuming I will:
1. Remove Server1 from domain, and shut it off.
2. Rename Server1a to Server1, reboot
3. Re-IP the newly named Server1 with 192.168.1.115, reboot
4. all is well?
Any thoughts/comments/best practices?
