Well, here's another demonstration of how good this list is.

Within five minutes of my posting, I got 20+ responses, and still puring

I feel so stupid, I forgot the /etc/nodename  but I also learned about
the /etc/net/itc*

Here's all the files I got from all the postings.


Next time I'll use sysconfig, but I was trying to do it myself and I
failed miserably.

Thank you all for your help.

I'm stumped, what have I forgotten to do?

My host file shows   testpbs. testpbs loghost

My hostname.le0

# cat /etc/hostname.le0

I have rebooted several times since the change of my host and the name
is not changing.

# uname -a
SunOS testam 5.7 Generic_106541-04 sun4d sparc SUNW,SPARCserver-1000

Solaris 7

Thanks in advance.
