Sorry this took so long, but the date to change IP address was
delayed. The only problem that I had was two-fold,
First I needed to get new passwords for the CenterLine C compiler
software we have, and also needed to change the names of the X-terminal configurations files we have running around here. Otherwise, all that was really necessary was to run all the hosts
files through a script that called sed to change the entries like:
cat /etc/hosts sed s/128.0/140.249/ > /etc/hosts.IP.changed
then copy the new hosts over the old hosts, checking the networks
and rc.local for and hardcoded IP addresses for routing.
THen I had to boot up the NIS master and re-ypinit it (probably
not necessary) then boot multi-user and the same w/ the rest of
the machines..
