I have a group of Notes servers that replicate to each other, I needed to move one of the servers to a new subnet is there a configuration in the Notes administrator to change the IP.
I have DNS and hosts file updated but still no replication to that one server?

Use the Admin client and open the console. Try the command:
     TRACE IP-address
And see if the server connects. AFAIK, a server has a cache of servers and their IP-addresses. I expect that cache is updated when a connection is made.

Did you try to ping the lone server?

There is also the nping utility, download here:  http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24004434

when I run the trace it works, showing the correct IP, before the IP change the databases were synchronized but no longer is!!
Also if I go under Servers or Network in Administrator I can browse to all servers, just replication to one where the IP was changed is the issue.
there are 4 servers, two of them had IP changed one is updating but the second is not, all settings looks the same and I can browse to any of the 4, how can I initiate replication to a specific server, like a one time replication.
Sorry but I have used Notes for a long time but not at an admin level, this was just dropped on my lap trying to make the best of it!

I was able to do a manual replication so they are talking, I guess my replication settings are not correct anymore for some reason.

atorex,,,,
This is the reason why I asked you to check the server document , configuration document and the connection documents of the server first .
