I did a clean install with Solaris 8.  However the name of the system when it boadcasts, is differnt from the name that I created at the installation.

When I do an uname -a the name "Server1" comes up.  However when this computer broadcasts on the network it sees the old name "Toronto1".  How can I correct this problem.

May be something wrong with your dns entry. login to another machine, type in:
nslookup Server1-ip

eg: nslookup 123.234.145.12

See if you have Toronto1 in the output, if there is one, then fix your dns entry from the DNS server.

or:

ping -s server1-ip

see if Toronto1 in the output. If it is there than fixup you name service database

cat /etc/hostname.*
egrep 'Toronto1|Server1' /etc/hosts
nslookup Toronto1
nslookup Server1
ifconfig -a


do all the above result look like you expect it?
If not, please post the one which are wrong.
