We are still in Windows NT 4.0 domain. Our Exchange 5.5 mail server is
sitting on a Win2000 member server (reason being ..we need bigger Hard Disk
storage space which Windows NT 4.0 can't support). We have about 150 NT and
mailbox users. 

Due to merging with another company, we need to revamp our internal IP
address, which means change the IP address for NT PDC,BDCs, Exchange servers
and network peripherals devices.

If we go to  Network TCP/IP configuration to change the IP address of PDC,
BDCs and Exchange servers and also updated the WINS database (to refelect
the new IP for Domain domain controllers), any problems for our Win NT 4.0
,Win2k  and WinXP PCs logging into to the domain ? 

What about the Exchange server mailbox, public folder and directory database
? Is it still working assume that the Outlook client point to Exchange
server using hostname ?

Thank you.

Kelvin Hee
