Thanks to everyone to replied! 
It turns out that /etc/inet/ipnodes had the old IP address
set - thanks to Dale Hirchert for pointing that out.
Also if I ran sys-unconfig it would have caught it aswell -
thanks Dominic Clark

So for future reference either change the following files :

or run sys-unconfig.

Thanks again!
