Hi all ,

silly queston this ,but I going to ask any way

Once sbs2008 is up and running can I just change the IP address from say 192.168.1.2   to
192.168.16.2  ?

only we have IP printer with static IP on the 192.168.16.*  & you know how it is just saving time.

Change IP address by right clicking Network Connection > Properties > Select TCP/IP > Properties > and enter IP address. Use the correct subnet mask (prob 255.255.255.0)

Good question, what will happen to all the joined machine's when you change the IP of the server. Also you need to change the DHCP release Pool. I don't know about this one, never tried this. Maybe a better idea to change the IP of the printer?

Yes, just changing the IP address can be done in the properties of the network card.

However, once you have done this you MUST run the Fix my network wizard.  If you don't then your services will not work correctly and there will be all sorts of bindings for the old IP address.

It would be better to change the IP address of the printer to an address that is in the same subnet as the server.

Is it easier? Depends what references that printer? If they have access to change it? It could be a serviced device and someone has to be paid to come and change the IP?

dematzer: Depends on the printer setup as you say. Changing the IP address of the server is easy. However changing server addresses to in order to access network resources is not usually standard practice.

there are 4 ip printers in all

3 on site one off site at a remote location run over VPN
we could do it given the password ,but the printer maintinance people are not alway forth coming with access info. (and yes we would have to pay)

I should point out this is a server in migrasion from sbs2003 to sbs2008.
so how much pain are we looking at ?

No it is not, but we are here to answer the questions presented by the author not make assumptions about what their configuration might be.

In migration? As in you are currently migrating?

I wouldn't advise changing the IP addresses during a migration, but once the migration has been completed there is no reason not to change them.

x3man > Yes but you missed a very important step when working with SBS 2008 which is the Fix My network Wizard.
