Hi I need help with this scenario, my company get a new ISP comcast ethernet, but the public IP configuration is different  we use a DMZ port kinda like new network, so that means the internal IP will be different for my servers, I have many user with ODBC connections point to my SQL but now my SQL will be different IP segment , so exist way to keep the IP in that ODBC and forward to the new SQL ip?


Current SQL IP: 10.1.1.101
New IP with new ISP : 10.10.10.101

my problem is too many (400) users to change manually the ODBC IP

If ODBC is configured with the server's name then the client ODBC's should get the new IP from DNS. If not, then another option would be to create a logon script that changes the client's ODBC settings:

regedit /s \\somefileserver\odbc.reg

where "odbc.reg" contains:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\YourODBCName]
"Server"="YourServerName"

If you have a sophisticated router/firewall for accessing the DMZ, it could perform IP address translation for the old to the new IP. But that is a setup full of pitfalls.
Best option is as posted above.

I would look at updating the route table and possibly the TNS host file.  That can be scripted to cut your time in half when updating.
