IP and Server name change

  Asked By: Alberto    Date: Apr 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1613

I have a situation here

We had installed SPS 2003 on a Windows 2003 server. Things were working fine.
But due some reason we had to change the server name and IP address. Now SPS has
stopped working. SQL Server is also on the same machine.

Can anyone tell me how I can make it work again.

Easiest fix to temporarily change  the IP and server  name back, do a full SPS
backup, change the name and IP address to thenew name, and do a restore. The
backup/restore will take care of changing 90% - the rest will be things like URL
lists that you will have to fix by hand.
