FSMO / DC temporary outage

Last Modified: 2014-09-02
In about a weeks time, we will be moving our DC to a new office, and in turn assigning it a new IP address.

From what I have read it should not be necessary to move the FSMO roles to our secondary DC as the total downtime should not exceed any more than about an hour.

Does anyone foresee any problems with this approach?
