domain change steps/files to change -- Red Hat

Our servers are currently running on Red Hat 5.8. What files need to be touched in order to implement a domain name change, i.e. '' to '' -- omitting the dns server changes? If this can be done without redirects besides 301's, I'd prefer that. We are using Apache as a web server with several virtual hosts on each server. Each virtual host name will need to reflect the new domain, such as '' to ''.

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth* or bond*
If you are using NIS then I would check this file:

You might check this file as well to make sure it has the correct name as well.
