Thanks for the 2 responses I received from Benoit Audet and Stuart
Saxon.  I was able to change the hostname without any problems.  To
change the hostname, there are only 3 files that need to be changed:

/etc/hostname.<network interface

The following hosts files are no longer used in solaris 10.

Reboot and you're done.

Thanks for all your help :)

Subject: Global Zone Hostname Change on Solaris 10


I just set up a Solaris 10 box.  The global zone hostname is sso1.  I
also created 2 other zones (braves and phillies) and they are up and
running without any problems.

The global zone hostname is an old legacy hostname that I have to
change.  I've already put the DNS request in and it will be valid
tomorrow, with a new host name called hwyzone1 (IP address will stay the
same).  The question I have is this.  When I change the global zone
hostname to hwyzone1, what affect, if any, will this place on the braves
and phillies zones that I have created.  Are there any gotcha's I need
to be concerned about?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
