    Win NT 4 Server SP6a

    I have just readdressed our network (removed public IPs from private LAN side). My PDC has been reIP'd also, but is nowhere to be found. What do I have to do to get the PDC (only one controller on network of 40 PCs) to accept it's new IPaddress.

    Presumably you changed the IP address in the TCP/IP setup and have rebooted.
    Can you ping it from itself and/or any workstation?

    Lief,

    Yes, that's what I did (changed in TCP/IP properties). The issue was Everytime I pinged the server name, the old IP was coming back, as not found. Even on the server. After much digging, and a phone call to a friend (late night calls are not good) the issue was in the WINS database. There were some static entries some clown put in who had the job before me. Once that was dumped, problem solved. Thanks for your reply. Have a great week.
