Hi. We have to change the ip address of all the mail servers in our environment. I tried to do this on testing server and found out that the server whose ip i had changed is working fine but the other server which was in cluster with this server is unable to connect to this server. I have changed the ip address in all the connection and configuration documents.Infact i have used hostname instead of ip address in connection and configuration documents. And i have also added the setting "DONT_USE_REMEMBERED_ADDRESSES=1 " in notes.ini of the server. What could be the problem.?Please help

Software/Hardware used:
Lotus Domino 8.5.1

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

From the Domino Console of the servers that are not connecting type

TRACE <ip address>

The Domino servers cache the IP address of the server for ease of connection next time.

It will then remember the change – warning check the Domino Directory to make sure PORTS tab in server documents and connection documents do not have the old IP’s

    ipconfig /flushdns ? Since it has resolved the hostname to the old ip before you changed it, that info is cached. Try flushing the cache and seeing if it works out...

    Yup ipconfig /flushdns should do the trick! As the other server are still resolving the old ip`s from cache, Entering the ip`s in the host file is not good practise, keep everything on dns, Regards
