How to change MSCS cluster Management IP address ?

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

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.
