Slave NIS server configuration change

Hello Everybody,

I have a question regarding SLAVE NIS SERVER in aix.
We are using NIS master of Sun Solaris 9.0 which is on different subnet i.e. 10.197.93.0. And Our slave server is having AIX 5.3 installed which is on 10.207.13.0 subnet.

I have a query regarding its name and ip address change of Slave server only.

Due to our Local Area Network configuration changes i want to change its IP address and hostname also. Will it work as it is acting as a NIS slave server??????? My new IP range is starting from 10.192.20.0

Or i have to do some another changes with NIS Slave configuration on this slave server.????

I have serached on it but nothing found what precautions i have to take for this change of IP and Hostname.

Please help!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks in Advance
