I've not tried this but hopefully someone has an answer

Normally when you are going to install an OES2 SP1 server for identity transfer, you select pre-migration server, install into the existing eDir tree and context as the "source" NetWare server, but give the OES2 server a temporary name.

Obviously it has a name and IP address at configuration time.

What if you change the IP before the ID transfer?

Basically I'd like to setup the server in our main office to get it into the tree and fully patched and then ship it out to the regional office. But doing that would require that i change it's IP after installation, but BEFORE the transfer.

I'm not sure if the ID transfer scripts require the IP to be the same when they run the changeip stuff.
