Change IP address

What consequence can I see if I change the IP address of a 2003 Active
Directory server?

I want to add a 2003 AD server to my 2000 AD domain and then after I make
the migration from 2000 AD to 2003 AD, I want to change the AD servers IP
address of the 20003 AD server because there are so many LDAP services
pointing to the old 2000 AD server.

RE: Change IP address

Hi Sam,

You'll need to restart the NETLOGON service to re-register the SRV records
in DNS. Otherwise, there is nothing else to do for AD. You may have to do
some cleanup in DHCP, DNS, IAS, IIS, applications, etc if you have other
things on there though. Generally for AD itself, it is fairly resilient.

Make sure you have other servers to cover the load and that services that
the DC is hosting are documented so you know what else has to change.

Re: Change IP address

Hi
If the server is going to be in a different subnet, don't forget to
configure ADSS with the proper subnet and the changed server.

I hope that the information above helps you.
