|Subject:||Replace server that uses IPsec policy|

I need to replace a server running Windows 2000 Server that is uses an IPSec
policy to encrypt traffic between it and one client station, with a Windows
2003 server. I do not need any of the new functionality of the Win2003
version of ipsec. I just want to do a one-to-one swap out.
As a test, I created an identical policy and applied it to the new server
and another client. That half worked, but caused the server to reboot every
3 hours with 1015 events, source Winlogon. I have now removed the new server
from the test policy.
There is no way for me to really test it until go-live, but does anyone have
an opinion about whether I can just rename/reIP the new server with the old
server's name and IP and IPsec just continue to function?
