  1. In AD with a computer GPO you can replace the ocisnventory.ini file with a new version containing the new IP.  
  2. or a script run with psexec

please always try to use a dns name insteqad of using a ip adress.

What you can also do is to deploy a package with a script which creates a local task.

This task replaces the ocisnventory.ini file an restarts the ocs-inventory agent.

Sometimes this is the beset way, because many people don't have integrated a computer into active directory.

I have done this bevore - but the script is complex

kind regards

Look's like I should've been thinking about it before installing Agen's,
So have you got an example of such scripts?

I use a VPN connection as a chanell for OCS communication that's why I need use an IP, and also doesn't have end users connected to a MS server so updating ocs.ini with script would be the best way

Best Regards

I had tested a new release of OCS on a new server. We have changed the cname to the new server over three days and it was working. So if you can use Cnames should be no problem.
