recently we changed ip range. It was rough but got it done.
There was an issue with the PDC not wanting to change IP.
I ended up promoting another DC to PDC.
The Old PDC ended up getting a dcpromo /forceremoval
Add remove programs DNS and WINS.
The network is static. I am still not able to change the IP information.
with in the GUI I change the IP, Subnet, Default Gateway and the DNS to the new correct settings.
When I close the dialog window and reopen it is back to the original configuration.
After changing when I do a reboot it diverts back to the old DNS settings.
It appears that I cleared roles properly with the dcpromo /forceremoval since when I try a ntdsutil metadata cleenup then connections it will not get past that point when looking for the server to connect.
A DCdiag.exe says the DC cannot be found.
More or less I just need to Change the IP on this server 2003 SP2 system to rejoin it to the domain then re add AD and DNS.
Besides backup, any IT division should have a disaster recovery plan. You will find a few tips below relating to the development of such a plan and to what issues one should pay special attention in the course of backup planning.

Thanks David, for your detailed and honest evaluation!
