"..With TCP/IP Services V5.0 and later, invoke the configuration tool:

You will want to select the so-called core environments configuration menus within the configuration tool to access the host name and the IP address(es) assigned to the network controllers, or to change the IP domain or subdomain for the host.
If you are using DNS, you will want to coordinate the host name change with the organization maintaining your DNS servers.
The /etc/hosts file?
When reconfiguring hosts other than the OpenVMS host itself (described above), OpenVMS does not have a manually-edited configuration file; you'll be using a configuration utility to manage the host database.
With TCP/IP Services V5.0 and later, invoke the configuration utility:
With TCP/IP Services versions prior to V5.0, invoke the configuration utility:
The commands to add and delete hosts are SET HOST and SET NOHOST, and these can be used to add host names to the OpenVMS analog of /etc/hosts file, and to set up aliases for these hosts.
Here are some command examples:
SET HOST host.example.com /ADDRESS=192.168.1.1
SET HOST host.example.com /ALIAS=www
SET HOST host.example.com /NOALIAS=www
SET NOHOST host.example.com
See the HELP text within the utility for additional details.
