Ldap client settings.

I have more than 160 machines (100 = windows, 60 = Linux) on my network with LDAP as the authentication server. I plan to change the IP for the LDAP server, easy right. But what happens to the ldap client settings ? Is there a way I can keep the settings on the LDAP* server and push it automatically to clients.  Is there a way ?

Imagine manually going to all machines and running system-config-authentication or editing /etc/nsswitch.conf file.

Update: I know I know we can forward the existing IP* to the new IP or a scp script. But what I am looking for is to push Ldap client settings.
