I have a new system (A) that I need to configure like old system (B).  Both are running Solaris 10.  I plan to bring down system B into single user, then change the IP and System Name in /etc/hosts, /etc/hostname.* and the /etc/nodename on the A system, with the information from the B system.  Then reboot.  Am I forgetting anything?

One thing to remember is the earlier versions on solaris 10 used /etc/inet/ipnodes in addition to the hosts file. (if you didn't edit ip nodes the system would use the original ip).
 I believe update 3 and above use a pointer, so you only have to edit /etc/hosts.

Also - You will need to edit
/etc/defaultrouter
/etc/netmask

/etc/resolv.conf also for dns
nsswitch.conf might need to be updated also.
