    Hello Petri Forum agian, long time no see. I have a server with sbs2008 that is connected to a public ip. Now the server will be in office to reduce cost with the 100mbit line, can i just change the ip of the server and everything will work fine ? i must add that it’s replicating to a Windows server 2003.

    Regards

    Can you provide more information with regards to the services being used on the server? Do people connect to the Companyweb remotely? Does software etc mapping to the computer use a name as oppose to the IP? How about DNS setup?

    Hey Virtual, the sbs2008 is set as Mail server Exchange 2007 and SQL Server, and is DC, nobody accesses this server except me for maintainance. And there is a replication to a Windows Server 2003 that is used for TS of the company , where is installed all of the software needed.DNS is setup in both machines. I think if i change the ip of the machine, dns records will update automatic. If i change the ip adress will exchange server stop working?

    Not sure in 2008, but in 2003 there is a Wizard that will handle all of it

    There isn’t a specific wizard for changing the IP as there was in 2003, I think it’s the Connect to the Internet Wizard you need to run now.

    As always with SBS DO NOT change anything manually if there is a wizard for it. That way madness lies.

    The main difference between SBS 2003 and SBS 2008 – in infrastructure , is that the firewall is not on the SBS 2008. So if your gateway has same internal IP address you don’t have to touch the SBS configuration.

    Not completely sure of what you are trying to do in your setup. but changing the IP can be handled afterwards by the “Fix my Network Wizard” which has about 200 different tests it performs. Check afterwards that DNS and DHCP at least have been corrected.

    Kevin, as I understand it, you are currently using a public IP range on your network and want to move to a private range. Is that correct?

    Also need to add – If you are changing your ISP you might need to run the CIW to configure the new DNS from the ISP
