Hi People,

Can anyone here please assist me in the steps that is best to change each of the IP address in the production node (blue site) only from the following diagram ?

Exchange Server 2007 CCR mailbox
My understanding is that when the mailbox is failover to the Recovery node, then the mailbox server in the blue / production site can be safely changed without dismounting the Mailbox DB in both sites.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I found the link within the following posting. So I would say yes the steps "should" work in Exchange 2007
