Question
What is the best way to change the IP address of the DS server?

Answer
You should check and change the IP address of the DS server in the following places:

  • Change your aclient settings over to point to the new IP address (or the server's hostname if possible)
  • Stop the Altiris eXpress Server, PXE Config Helper and PXE Manager services
  • Change the IP information within these files in the eXpress share:
    • .\default.cfg
    • .\pxe\pxe.ini
    • .\pxe\pxemanager.ini
    • .\pxe\rpc.ini
  • Start the Altiris eXpress Server, PXE Manager and PXE Config Helper services (Note the order of start up)
  • Change each PXE / Bootworks configuration to point to the new IP address (lmhosts file)
