IP Migration !!

By edmond_sng ·
Hi,

We have a network that uses static IP and are planning to do an IP migration. What is the order that we should be doing the migration? Should we start from the workstations then print servers and finally the servers or the other way round?
Any suggestions would be appreciated !!

IP Migration !!

by johnlkeyser In reply to IP Migration !!

Either way there will be client downtime so do this on a friday afternoon so you can go in saturday if need be, I would recommend servers first as the clients will not be able to log on or find devices before those devices actually have ip addresses. If you are not going to keep your existing ip scheme I would recommend one as follows: configure all servers with static ip addresses with a range 172.17.1.x subnet 255.255.0.0, all printers static with 172.17.2.x subnet 255.255.0.0, all networkingdevices static with 172.17.3.x subnet 255.255.0.0 i.e routers, firewalls etc and then configure dhcp to hand out leases to workstations 172.17.4.1 - 172.17.4.253 subnet 255.255.0.0, this way you always know what type of device you are working with when all you have is an ip address to go on. You will need to configure dhcp and reconfigure dns for those ranges.
