-------------------------------------------------------837391 is getting 
changed.
I'm putting in the technical update today.

It's wrong
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Wrgonggitty-wrong-wrong Wrong!

WINS is *NOT* required for Exch functionality, but proper name
resolution support in the network *IS* required.  If you've built your
network, name services & clients properly, using a "simple" name gets
you the same response as using FQDN in a "ping" command.

-------------------------------------------------------Hi Mike,

Looks like you are going to also have dependencies on Wins and with the 
MSDTC:

resolution for full functionality

Hi Mike,

I've only had to change a SQL 2000 Active / Active Cluster IP and it 
involves some additional steps for SQL Virtual Names. It's been over 5
years 
since I built an Exchange 2000 cluster, but I do not recall if Exchange
has 
any dependencies (I would probably post this to the Exchange list and I
am 
cc'ing them as well)

Take a look at :
Exchange Server 2003 Cluster Configuration Checklist
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/itsolutions/msit/operations/exchcluster
cklist.mspx?pf=true

Changing the IP address of network adapters in cluster server
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230356/EN-US/

Or in PDF format at: 
http://www.maned.com/support/knowledge_base/Roundhouse/Recommended_Readi
ng/Q230356.pdf

Also just in case you ever have to change it on a SQL:

How to change the network IP addresses of SQL Server virtual servers

Hope this helps,

Sincerely,

Hey,
I have an Exchange 2003 active/passive cluster on Windows 2003 and I
need
to change the private ip on both nodes. I realize that while I'm
changing the IP the nodes will not talk to each other and likely kick
the passive node off or stop the cluster service for a few minutes on
the passive node.

Is there anything else I will need to do or look out for? I don't
*think* this is a big deal but since it's a production cluster, and I've
never had to do this, I thought I would check before I tried it.

Thanks again.

Mike.
