Question SGI ALTIX server on local network

Hi Gurus!
I'm not expert in Linux. I'm a Sun Solris Guy.
Today I received a SGI Altix 3700 server runing with linux 7.2. I just want to connect this machine to my local network.

There are three Ethernet ports, one in console management box and two in IX-brick (I/O module). How can I change the both IPs, one for mangement and one for public users.

At the moment I have connected with the server through my laptop with cross cable (UTP) and getting IP from the console box (DHCP). I logged in as root and see the IPs 10.x.x.x 10.178.x.x are there. how can I change it, if I changed it, is my connection lost from console?

One more thing, can I put this machine as a NIS+ client for my domain? if yes ! how ?

Is your SGI box running Red Hat Linux 7.2? If it is you may edit the files in " /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ " directory. eg the file " /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 " relates to the eth0 NIC ( the command " ifconfig -a " will list all your NIC settings ). When you change your network parameters they will only change when the service network is restarted eg by issuing the command " service network restart " or by rebooting the machine. this URL
will provide you with all the information you need to configure a Linux box as a yp client, you'll find it's remarkably similar to configuring an NIS domain with Sun Solaris.
