Also what ports do we have to make sure are open in the firewall.

Thank You

No changes are necessary to the exchange serer itself?

check your receive connector to make sure they are configured to receive on all IP's. You will also want to configure any spam filters you have or edge servers. Your firewall config will be  a bigger problem I presume

All you need to do on the exchange server is edit the properties of the betwork card and make sure it has the new IP address and netmask for the site.
IF its on a different site, do you have your AD Sites and Services configured correctly?
You will also want to make sure the new site has an AD Server on it that has the GC role enabled.
What version of exchange?
