I am planning an upgrade to Exchange2013 on a new server from Exchange2007.  Since I have the old IP set in so many setting across my network I want to keep the same IP address.

Please tell me there is a way to do this!

My current setup
For incoming mail we use a 3rd party service for filtering, email does not get sent directly to our network.
Email comes from this service to our Exchange2007
Other than that t is pretty basic
One exchange sever
One Storage Group for emails
We do use Pubic Folders so One Storage Group for Public Folders about 30
About 150 mailboxes

Thank you!

It shouldn't be difficult.

I would set everything up in a co-existence configuration - http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2013/migration-deployment/planning-and-migrating-small-organization-exchange-2003-exchange-2013-part1.html

Once you have that completed, change the IP on the old and new servers.  Uninstall Exchange from the old server and remove it from the network.

For future proofing, I would recommend that you change the dependencies from using the IP address to using an internal DNS record.

How about if I change the IP address of the server with the current Exchange2007 to something different before I start the upgrade.  I would prefer to wait a few weeks before I Uninstall Exchange from the old server.

Any issues with changing the IP address of the Exchange 2007 server?

Thank you!
