IBM has written a time saving BASH script that can change the system name and network address of Linux systems. This configurator was created for IBM administrators and other internal use, but has now been released for download.
Using the NICL script allows a system administrator to activate a new system in under 30 minutes. Without it, one might have to resort to a full installation of an image from scratch that, including the operating system and middleware, could easily take several days (or weeks).

This tool has been tested on the following Linux systems: SuSE SLES 8.1; RedHat 8, 9, and FC1; and VMware ESX servers.
