Disaster Recovery production box change

Recently one of our production Sun OS servers was switched to another similar server.

When I am looking at both these boxes details now the IPs are different.

Our mainframe jobs send some data files to production box which we are now receiving on new box.

Does this mean that these mainframe jobs have been changed and servername reference has been modified?

Or is it possible that IP remains the same and no changes are required on Mainframe jobs.

What do you mean by 'switched' to another similar server? Was this:

1) A zone moved from on server to another
2) A physical to virtual migration
3) A new Solaris installation

Possibly the new server has new IP addresses but the mainframes are pointing to a DNS entry and that DNS entry has been changed to the new IP addresses. You could do a reverse DNS lookup to determine if the current IP address is in the DNS.

Switched to ‘similar’ server here means  switch to new Solaris installation.

As per the latest information the Mainframe team has switch over the snode to point to the DR server for us. This means that all mainframe obs should point to the DR server now.

I need to understand this architecture. Can you provide some link where I can understand these terms ( SNODE)
