Windows 2012 Active Directory - Change IP Address

Experts,

I am in the process of installing a new Active Directory 2012.
On the initial setup it will have the ip address of 192.168.1.155, when I put this server in production, it will change the ip address to 192.168.1.1

What are the consequences of changing the ip once it has been fully configured?

Is there anything special that I need to run once I change the ip?

Just restart the netlogon service or restart the box to make sure the record is updated in DNS.   Make sure any boxes pointing to the box for DNS are updated.  

Thanks

you can change it. windows will update all required entries in DNS server. you have to change primary DNS server ip if you are not set it to 127.0.0.1
can change the IP address. Run “ipconfig /flushdns”, “ipconfig /registerdns”, and “dcdiag /fix”. After changing the IP address of the server

You will also need to reconfigure all of your clients with static IPs to use the new address for DNS - if you use DHCP you will also need to change the DNS server address being supplied by DHCP
Commented:
Make sure your DNS pointers are updated and if you are running DHCP on that server make sure that gets adjusted as well.  Reboot and you might have to do an ipconfig /flushdns on the client stations or a simple reboot.
