[Samba] Changing IP Scope on a Samba DC

I've asked a couple of other questions on here, which people have kindly
answered and I'm waiting for the opportunity to implement what they have

In the meantime:

We are running out of IP addresses!
We currently use and it's proving to not be enough addresses.

I'm considering changing to to virtually quadruple the
number of addresses we have available and hopefully keep us in available
addresses for years to come.

My question is: how hard is this to do in Samba? We have 3 DC's and from
what I read, I need to demote one, change the IP then re-promote it... but
I'm guessing it then won't be able to talk to the others because it will be
on a different subnet.

Is there any other way to do it, or is it just not possible?

Thanks in advance for your help!
