Thats about it, some updating of the /etc/hosts file may also be needed.

Since it may take a while until the DNS record is updated everyware over
the Internet, I would, if possible, alias the new ip to the machine and make two
dns records  (i.e the machine will have both the new and the old ip-address for
a while).
