Changing DNS on MAS Servers

Changing DNS on MAS Servers

Changing DNS on MAS Servers

My DNS server IP's in my environment have recently changed. My MAS Servers are statically assigned so they will need to be manually updated. Does that require a reboot after that change or should it be a simple change?

RE: Changing DNS on MAS Servers

Reboot...we did the same thing and our BP said we should make the change after hours and reboot to avoid any connectivity issues.

What storage backend do you use for your MM system?

RE: Changing DNS on MAS Servers

I have to update the same on the MSS and MN as well. Any specific order or are they independent of one another. My plan is to do the MN, MSS and then MAS Servers and then reboot.

RE: Changing DNS on MAS Servers

Noting that we have Exchange back-end, so that's what I meant about avoiding connectivity issues.

RE: Changing DNS on MAS Servers

A reboot should be done but i would do MSS wait for it to come back up and then do the other 2 in any order.

RE: Changing DNS on MAS Servers

Just trying to be super sure with this one.. There's nowhere else in the MAS Servers I need to worry about? I'm basically changing the DNS IP's of the NIC card to the 2 new ones and wasn't sure if there are other areas in the server that would also need updating. The only thing in the environment changing are the DNS IP's.
