Howdy folks,

Our LINUX box checks the companies mail using UUCP. This is working. It's about to not work, however, because we are changing our domain name.

How to I change the domain name in LINUX, and how do I change the UUCP setup to reflect the change? The LINUX install is completely no-frills, and we are using the Taylor UUCP setup.

Thanks for your help!
Daniel

If you have a no frills it should be easy, mind you which Distribution are you Using? Slakware, Redhat....?

I use Slakware and this is what I would do...
 
type       netconfig

this should, after going through a few questions set up your domain name, make sure you know all your IP addresses, and Name server addresses, etc. maybe print out the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 file to have a record of the IP addresses.  So when netconfig asks, you can give them.
      When the system next comes on line you should have a new domain name, Also this should, if your sendmail configuration is setup correctly, and Your Linux box reports it's domain name correctly, the sendmail daemon will also be automatically informed of the domain name change.
