I'd like to thank all of those, who sent me tips. Normally, I mention their names. But this time, I reveived around 50 responses.
My original question was:
> I have a sparc 5 Solaris 2.5 system. I'm trying to change it's hostname. Is there anyway I can do it without reinstallation or losing any files?
There are two ways you can do it.
1. edit the following files replacing the old hostname with the new hostname.
/etc/hostname.hme0 or whatever interface it is.
boot the system
2. by using the /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig command
this command will bring you to the ok prompt
boot the system and follow the instructions to re-name the machine.
If you're changing the network of the system with different hostname and IP address, I'd recommend step 2.
