We have a machine with Redhat 4.2 as OS. As HTTP server, we use Apache 1.2.4.

Currently the name of the machine is apollo.ourdomain.se and we want to change that name to utb.ourdomain.se

Where, in Redhat, do we change the name to utb.ourdomain.se (except in the httpd.conf file for Apache and the configuration of our DNS server)?

Thanks in advance.

The name of the local machine is stored in /etc/sysconfig/network.  From the default configuration, it's the second variable set in that file.  Change it there and reboot, or use the hostname command as root to go ahead and change it on the fly.
