Apparently, Sol10 got a bit more strict.  The /etc/inet/ipnodes file was 
the culprit.  Thanks to all for their responses and to David, Ruben, 
Darren, Dave, and Tim who had the correct answer.
I took the extra entries from ipnodes and moved them to hosts then 
linked ipnodes to hosts.  Done.
Thanks to the best answer list on the net.

Original Question
OS: Sol10-200503
System: Ultra 60

I am definitely missing something here.  I wanted to change the IP of my
workstation so I modified my entry in /etc/hosts to the new IP, rebooted
and it is still using the old IP.  This has to be some Sol10 thing or I
am just still drunk from last night.

/etc/hostname.ce0  contains my hostname
/etc/nodename contains my hostname
uname -n produces my hostname
/etc/nsswitch.conf has 'files dns' for the hosts: entry
/etc/hosts has my hostname with the new IP (not duplicated)

What am I missing?
