exchange server IP address change

nppadhi asked

we have a requirement to change the ip address of all the exchange servers roles (HUB, CAS, MAILBOX). can i change the IP address of the above servers straightaway or is there any steps do i need to follow? please help


Watch Question

Is this exchange server just a member server? No AD?  

If there is no AD you should be fine with changing the IP as long as you update the DNS record on the DNS server so the network knows how to reach this server. Even if there is AD you should be still fine but it is more clean if the server is just a member server.

Are you changing just the last IP  or moving it to a new range? If you are leaving it on the same range and just adjust the last octet you'll be fine as long as you update DNS records.
