I'm going to be moving a cluster of SGIs (a NIS server
and its clients) over to a new
LAN soon which will require new IP numbers and a new
subnet mask. We are keeping the same domain name
and DNS server specifications. Oh and I'm running
IRIX 6.5.4m on all systems.
Although I have set up plenty of SGIs
from scratch, I want to make sure that IRIX doesn't
stash things like host name and IP number in odd
places (as Solaris has been known to do) such that when
I reboot the machines suffer an identity crisis.
I've planned to change the following files on each host:
/etc/hosts (of course) (for new IP number(s) )
/etc/config/netif.options (for interface specification)
/etc/config/ifconfig-1.options (for netmask and broadcast)
Relative to NIS I'm not changing anything ot at least
I'm thinking that I don't have to. Are there any other
files that might stash the IP # or netmask ?
