Solaris 8 on E250 and Sparc20
Using DNS

Our company has just gone through a merger and we're now adapting a new name. All our Oracle db and apps/web servers currently have domain name as "abc.com". Now it will become "def.com". I have some ideas on which files to change (eg. /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/hosts, and the DNS db.xxx zone files).

I just wanted to get some guidelines on how to go about with the change from old domain to new domain. which changes first?

Has any Unix guru out there done a change in the server's domain name? Any pointers/tips/websites much appreciated.

best to check on metalink.oracle.com for the 100% answer.

Some old products (like OWS I think) take the hostname at installation time and built it into the binary files.

/etc/hosts as well as files like /etc/nodename, /etc/net/tocots/hosts, /etc/net/ticotsord/hosts and any files in /etc whose name begins with "hostname" would also be candidate Unix files impacted.

Try something like this under etc or your oracle_base (pipe through "strings" to keep the output clean)...
find . -follow -name "*" -exec grep -i ABC {} \; -print
