Implication of IP address change

I need someone to advice me on the implication of changing the IP address
of my Netware servers.Went on on a training was told it was possible while
some of our Novell Consultant actually discourages it, saying it is not a
good practice.Can someone tell me the fact and its implication to my
Network.

regards,

Tony

Re: Implication of IP address change

What versions/SPs are your servers?
What other products are installed on the servers?

Tony -- You can reply to Tim in the same thread in which you reply to
Joseph. Your newsreader must have stuttered while posting.

Re: Implication of IP address change


it can be done, it's just more laborious for certain things than
others. There are TIDs to cover most everything out there and we can
help with the rest of you we know the answer to Tim's question, i.e.
what products on the server(s), e.g., apache, groupwise, zen, etc...

what your "Novell Consultant" a "consultant who does novell stuff" or a
"consultant from novell"?

Re: Implication of IP address change

With 6.5 changing the server pieces are easy. Use NoRM to change the
IPs.

Other products are another item. e.g. GroupWise

Hence my question on what 3rd party products are installed.

For the server itself, agree. More work for other applications running
on the server. e.g. GroupWise.

Re: Implication of IP address change


NRM doesn't do everything. Even when you think you're done, grep the
old ip# from the root of sys...

Re: Implication of IP address change

Sorry for not posting this message on time.got this mail now and am
replying immediately.
In respect of richard Beels question the two people that had disparity
about the IP address stuff are a Novell Certified trainer who tooks us on
a training and the other person is a person that works with Novell stuff.
My network runs IDM, BorderManager,Zenworks.

Thanks.

Re: Implication of IP address change

Are both IPs open and on the same subnet?
If so you can add the second IP (ADD SECONDARY IPADDRESS x.x.x.x) and
you would not have to worry about the differences for the IPs.

The biggest possible effort is with Border. You might have a bunch of
NATs and filters you will have to go through.

I do suggest you ask about changing IPs for these products in each of
the applicable product admin forum.
