Relocating Offices

By jfjpcman ·
I work with a IT group, and the organization move recently. The higher IT workers worked on moving our Internet and email server, then said that they could not connect to the Internet at the new site. They said they must move Internet server back to old site because the IP address that we are assigned will not work at the new site. Is this normal?

Sounds to me like there is a need to fix the DNS information. Check internal and external assignments. If you changed ISP's or were assigned a new set of IP addresses this has to be setup on the main DNS servers which will then propogate to all secondary DNS servers, As long as the ISP is made aware of the assignments. I would bet that it is merely a DNS issue. Do a Trace route to verify where it is pointing and check your DNS server for "inhouse entries" to see if there is something overridingany external DNS information and check to see if the change of the ".com" address for your server was ever sent to the ISP.

Thanks, I am taking it for granted that the senior members of the IT team checked these. Your answer seems the to be a solution to the other problem we are having. All of the computers cannot communicate with each other.

No, it's not normal. You don't provide enough details, and yes it could happen that in very specific situations (read setup) it's a problem if you change the site but for sure it's not because of the I.P. address, and I don't see any reason why you should move the server back instead of correcting what's wrong in the setup.

Thanks, I did not get a lot of details, but no answer is the way that I was thinking about the move.

well if they just relocate everything to a different location all you need to do is to move your circuits (isdn,T1), by just relocating computers to a different locations you do not need to change anything unless you have a the new location a different ip scheeme. Even do you can run 2 different segmetns on a network with different ip's.
I will be happy to talk to you my number is 954-325-8780 I did the same move as you
