    Hi,

    I had SharePoint running on a Windows 2003 Server but due to an upgrade had to deploy it to a new Windows 2008 Server. The old server is called ACHSP. I thought the simplest thing would be to setup the new server and call it ACHSPNEW. When I was ready to move over to it I changed the old from ACHSP to ACHSPOLD and chenged the IP address to something different. I then changed the name of ACHSPNEW to ACHSP and changed the IP details to that of the original server. Now I can ping my new server by IP address but not by its DNS name()ACHSP).

    Have I missed something?

    Cheers
    Paul
