SBS 2003 Changing Server IP address
Posted on 2011-03-12
After several years of letting the SBS2003 server poodle along, the time has come to update to SBS 2008 on a new server.
I've run the checks to ensure the Server is fit for the migration tool (I hope!) but need to change the network IP addresses and this is where I have a problem. The router was 192.168.0.10 and I changed it to 192.168.1.1 /255.255.255.0 as recommended.
The router continues to supply DCHP.
I changed my terminal to get its IP address from the router and changed the server IP address to 192.168.1.15/255.255.255.0. Initially I did this via the Control Panel.
My terminal can log on and Exchange works fine but but it will not allow me to connect to the KCSERVER domain and says I'm working off line.
Back on the server I've run the Internet Connection Wizard to ensure that the DNS values are correct (which they are), however when I accept that page of data I get an error message ".. the IP address of the router is not within the same address space (subnet) as the IP Address and subnet mask specified for the network adaptor..." Well they look OK to me!
I've rerun BPA and it now says the DNS client is not configured but when I run the link everything seems to be as it should be.
Any ideas what I should do?
