Hello I am new here and have found this site to be very useful!
I had a quick question about making some changes to the only domain controller on my network.
It’s running Windows Server 2003. The IP scheme of the network is 172.16.1.X with subnet mask of 255.255.255.192
I wanted to know if I could easily change the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 because I need to share a printer with a different network that has the 255.255.255.0 mask and would rather not install another router(s). Can I just change the subnet mask in the TCP/IP settings and do the same to all client computers or is there something else I need to do in order to insure a seemless transition. I’m pretty sure I’ll need to make some changes to the DNS server (which is the same as the AD domain controller)
I’m a newby to this kind of stuff and would greatly appreciate any and all advice I can get.
