Moving Exchange 2010 SP1 Server to another site in same domain

Only one Exchange 2010 SP1 server
Windows 2008 ADDS
Exchange server located in Site B (has to now move to site A)
History: when Exc server was first setup, in Site B, schama master had to be moved from first DC in site A

I am aware of all external DNS changes that need to occur.

I plan to shutdown the Exc Server
Move the schema master from site B to site A (site B to be shut down soon)
Take Exc box to Site A, change IP,

My there any other changes I need to make in the Exc server or on the DC in site A?
Will the Exc server auto pick up the DCs in the new site? and update in server config the DC and the Global cat server?

Thanks Experts :)

It shouldn't be a problem so long as your AD sites and services and subnets are setup correctly.

For the procedure please see the answer here -

If the sites are interconnected I would change the subnet assignment for that site and include it in site A before you change any IP's. Whilst there are no real hard relations (anything breakable) between ip and exchange I usually tend to avoid changing it.

Once you moved Exchange to new site and change the IP, run ipconfig /registerdns
