    file changes for IP and routing changes


    we are moving our servers to another network. I need to know everywhere the addresses need changed.
    I can do it dynamically with route and ifconfig but after testing I will need to make the changes permanent

    What about using yast?

    Go into Network Devices -> Network Card (assuming it's a NIC you need to update)

    if you dont know everyplace that the IP address may be hardcoded, then fgrep each filesystem looking for the old IP address. use the -r flag to recurse all subdirectories. It's brute force and may take a while, but it should work.

    I could use yast, which is how I defined it originally, but I was hoping to learn a little more about my system. I hate the fact that we have become plug and play with windoz.
    thanks
