exchange 2010 adding dag ipaddress

I currently had a DAG spanned across 2 data centers.  there are 2 servers/copies in each data center.  I'm moving the passive servers to a new 3rd data center.  The plan calls for moving only half the copies at a time in order to maintain the capability while servers are in transit.  As an initial step I added an IP address to the DAG for the third data center using:

Set-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup <DAGName> -DatabaseAvailabilityGroupIpAddresses IP1, IP2, IP3

This command went through without issue and Get-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup does reflect the change.  My only cause for concern is that the Cluster manager still only reflects the original 2 IP Addresses.  This could be because the servers haven't been moved or re-ip-ed yet.

Does anyone have any insight on this?

Let me know.  Thanks.

why setup 3rd IP address?

you also need to make sure the heartbeat NIC can communicate with each other.

No one got back to me so trial by fire but I got the amazingly simple answer.

Once the server is up and running and everything is settled with its ip reconfig run Set-DatabaseavAilabilityGroup -identity <DAGName>

This reasserted all settings it looks a little scary while it's running but it did the trick. There was no outage DR or Prod and my project was a big success.
