How can I upgrade an old sparc5 running Solaris 6, and NIS+ master server, to a Ultra box running Solaris 8, and also a NIS+ master server?

The Ultra box will replace the sparc one. The machine name, IP and domain stay the same.

thanks

The way I would do it, is build the solaris 8 box, make it a root replica, then promote it the Master, then take out the old master.
Follow the NIS+ FAQ (http://www.eng.auburn.edu/users/rayh/solaris/NIS+_FAQ.html)
You will have to use a temporay IP address while they are both running.
