Hi People,

Can anyone here please let me know how to change the cluster MSCS management IP address safely without bringing down the whole production cluster node ?

I cannot seems to change it from the Failover Cluster management console in Windows Server 2008 SP2.

FYI, this MSCS holds Exchange Server mailbox server role and I need to change the IP address due to the server migration project.

Thanks

To be clear you want to change IP of Cluster Group or of the Exchange CCR?
From your question I understand you want to change it to Cluster group, which you should do it on the Failover Cluster Management selecting cluster name, then expanding Cluster Core Resources (http://sqlbuzz.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/32.jpg), expand Name under Cluster Name (http://sqlbuzz.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/51.jpg), then change your IP there.
Your CCR shouldn't be impacted by this change.

Cool, the ultimate goal is also change the exchange CCR virtual IP as well.

Can I do it the same from the cluster failover management console ?

Yes, you have to take the cluster offline but you would use the failover cluster management console as per my previous advice.
