Switching IP Address in a NT Domain

By hawksberry ·
I need to switch my IP addresses and my subnet on my network. I have a PDC and a BDC. Do I switch my PDC then my BDC or should I switch my BDC first. Any help would be great.

You should do the PDC first, then the BDC. B4 you do it, if you use WINS, make sure you delete the dinamic entries and modify the statics.

Good Luck!

I agree with doing the PDC first.

In addition to the WINS procedures already mentioned, if you are using DHCP, be sure to change the scope to reflect the new addressing scheme then have all the workstations update by doing an ipconfig /releaseipconfig /renew or having them re-boot.

Also, plan this to occur before a day when workloads are light - there are almost always some bizarre problems to mop up after an addressing change (e.g. workstations or printers that were supposed to be DHCP but had a static address for some reason, etc).
