Portserver 16

We have 5 of these running over a wide area network connected to a server running sco open server 5.0.4. They were configured to use realport. The wide area network is about to be changed requiring a change of ip for 4 of these units. When originally setup, they were given a host name and entered in the /etc/hosts file with their ip. we used “drpadmin” to set them up and used the host name of each unit (not the ip) in the setup. Do we have to run “drpadmin” again to remove and reinstall the units with the new ip’s, or can we simply change the /etc/hosts file to reflect the new ip?

If the “drpadmin” settings use the host name, a change to the /etc/hosts file should be all that is necessary to route to the new IP.
