Change IP and Hostname

I wanted to know how to change IP and Hostname on HPUX system, and I don't want to make it as NIS master either.
Could someone tell me the files I need to modify and make sure it's on network?

Thanks! Smilie

See this thread. That set_parms script will do all of the work for you. You will probably have set_parms in /etc. It has been around a long time. What is new is that HP finally has a man page.

Thanks Perderabo
Glad to know about man page works!
I can also go into /etc/rc.config.d/netconf for network interface
