To change the system name:

Modify the system name using the command:

where newname is the new system name.
Relink the kernel by entering:
This will keep the nodename and the system name consistent.
Run mkdev mmdf and change the host name at the top of the window.
If you have SCO TCP/IP installed and configured, make these changes:
Edit /etc/hosts and change the line corresponding
to the old system name to read:
IP_address newname newname.company.COM
where IP_address represents the IP address of this system.
newname is the new system name and
newname.company.COM is the fully qualified domain name.
Edit /etc/default/nbconf and change the value of
NB_HOST to NB_HOST=newname.
Reboot the system.
