    I was playing around with a test system in the office and moved it to another network. It was running dhcp so picked up a new address. In the console, there was a message about incorrect ip address. Click to go to the network settings page and select the correct address. Once I did, the current address was in the internet facing Ip address. Clicked OK and everything worked without a reload. It also updated all the items in the parameters page to the correct LAN IP.

    I reset the LAN address in my firewall rules, re-provisioned a phone and tested calls in and out with my SIP provider. Set up an SBC and it all worked.

    Is this a new or undocumented feature? I was a little surprised that it worked.

    If I recall they have been working on perfecting this.
    I remember reading a post topic regarding this - and support stating the above. I may be wrong.

    Hello @neville

    This was introduced in SP2 so now you do not need to re-install the system when the local IP address changes. However some values remain unchanged like some email notifications. Like @craigreilly mentioned we are working to perfect this.
