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

Changing the IP address of network adapters in cluster server

Or in PDF format at: 

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,

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.
