Changing the IP Address in SBS 2008

There is no longer a wizard for changing the IP address in SBS 2008, but the process is still very simple.

   1. Start > ncpa.cpl
   2. Right click on the server NIC and select Properties
   3. Double click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
   4. Configure the new IP address and click OK, OK, etc.
   5. Open the SBS Console
   6. Go to the Network tab, and then the Connectivity tab
   7. Click the Fix My Network link
   8. Run through the wizard and click Finish when complete
   9. Confirm there are no unexpected errors

That should be it, but read on...

Check DNS and DHCP

There may be a root DNS A record pointing to the old server IP in the SBSDomain Forward Lookup Zone - delete it.

Also double check that the DHCP scope options are set correctly.
