Hi, I have a question about changing static IP on a DC (Server 2008 R2).

I am migrating to a new machine (server) for my DC at one of my branch sites and was wondering if I could set it temporarily static IP then once I have ADDS with Integrated DNS is  installed and everything is moved to it as the new bridgehead server, like DNS, DHCP, etc. then decommission the old bridgehead server.  Once the old server is decommissioned, I want to use it's static IP.

Is this possible to do without causing ill effects to the new bridgehead server?  (Changing it's static IP after ADDS with DNS Integrated & DHCP is installed.)

Thanks in advance.
