Changing IP for Unity 5.0(1) Primary and Domain Controller/Exchange

Unanswered Question

Hey all,

I need to move my Primary VM and my DC/Exchange box to a new location. We recently relocated our DataCenter and with this move will be changing my IP address. Does anyone have a rough outline or a procedure on doing this? I see how to change IP address on the Primary in Cisco's documentation but what I don't see is how the change of the DC/Exchange server's IP will effect the primary/secondary. Is there anything I will need to do on those boxes for them to recognize the change. Will this effect my connection to Exchange?

Any assistance is greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advance,

hi Brent,

As long as you change your DNS setting to reflect the exchange/DC, you should be fine with the move.

Hi -

Just make sure you have <40 ms response time between your primary vm server and the Exchange server or you may see Unity go into UMR mode. If you can get Unity and Exchange on same subnet, even better. I would also check your replication in DC/GC Reconnect tool to make sure Unity picks up the same GC/DC server.
