I have setup a shared folder on a computer that anyone can access and I have people search for the computer using ip address and then map the network drive.  This computer needs to be changed out due to a hard drive issue.  Can I change the ip address of the computer mentioned above to another ip and then transfer the original ip to the new computer I am setting up and have all users who had mapped the drive contrinue to access the shared folder with no issues or will I run into problems and need another solution to accomplish this?

These are win 10 pro computers on a windows 2012 server environment.
