Change the static IP address of a domain controller

·  At your production environment, you should have alternate Domain Name System
·  You should modify the DHCP server to distribute the alternate DNS server and the new DNS server IP
·  If the affected client computers are configured with static IP addresses, you need to change the IP address

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in the domain of the domain controller whose IP address you are changing.

1. At the dc server, logon as Domain Administrator.
2. Click "Start > Run", enter "ncpa.cpl".
3. Right-click "Local Area Connection", select "Properties".
4. Double-click "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)".
5. Next to "IP address", type the new address.
6. Next to "Subnet mask", type the new subnet mask.
7. Next to "Default gateway", type the new Default gateway.
8. Next to "Preferred DNS server", type the new address of the DNS Server
9. Next to "Alternate DNS server", type the address of the DNS Server that this computer contacts.
10. Click "OK".
11. Click "Close".
12. Launch Command Prompt, enter the following commands:

Ipconfig /registerdns
Dcdiag /fix

Ensure the service records are appropriately registered with DNS.
