Questions Considered:


IpMigrator Utility

The IpMigrator utility needs a file containing the list of old and new IPs. This file has the following format:

<old IP1> <new IP1>
<old IP2> <new IP2>
<old IPn> <new IPn>

where each line contains the old IP and the corresponding new IP. The path to this file is passed as a command line argument, e.g.:
ipmigrator.exe ips.txt > ipmigrator.log

Note: IpMigrator inserts new bindings AFTER the corresponding old bindings in the IIS metabase. H-Sphere uses the first binding to obtain virtual web host name and IP, which means, while the old bindings exist in the bindings list, H-Sphere will manage resources with the old IP. For instance, H-Sphere will add host aliases to the old IP's. Thus it is strongly recommended to remove old IP bindings as soon as they aren't needed.

IpChange Utility

Note: IpChange can be used to remove old IP bindings after running IpMigrator and subsequent DNS propagation downtime (see the IpMigrator note), just pass it the same file you used for IpMigrator. The old IPs will be removed without creating duplicate entries for new IPs.
