If you get in trouble, that's the easiest way.

Let's see if I can remember all the spots.
You'll need to update your DNS and/or NIS servers, if you use them.
Update /etc/hosts. I can't recall whether this file is shared between
the server and clients, so you may need to update it for all clients.
Update /etc/bootptab on the server. This contains, among other
things, the IP address of the clients, indexed by ethernet address.
Update /etc/rc.config.d/netconf on the servers and clients.
If you set the primary boot paths on your clients to point to the
server's IP address, fix that.
If you have any stuff listed by IP address in inetd.sec, fstab,
exports, sendmail.cf, etc., fix all those. To be really careful, I'd
just grep for the old IP addresses in every last file on the server.
I think that should about cover it, but it's been over three years
since I last thought seriously about diskless stuff, so I could have
