I need to change my ip #s in my server becuase I went from one ip account to block of four so they changed my ip number: I run my own dns server: looking at named.conf I see that there is an entry for rndc-key: is there an unforseen "to myself" relation between my ip and this key: if I simply change the ip is this going to break something..: other files I realize I have to change are....
(by the way I am also changing the name of the server)..

rc.conf
host.conf
resolv.conf
..all the separate files under 'master'

It does no matter, since rndc will contact the system using localhost and then it uses the key exchange to validate the request.
Check the rndc configuration section within named.conf to see whether rndc connection is limited to localhost or will named listen on any IP of the system for rndc connections.

IMHO, never make elective changes on the weekend since Murphy's law will inevitably come into effect without regard of whether the change is the underlying cause.
Whenever a change notice is seen and something goes wrong, the instinctive first question is, "Did the change you made cause this?"
