No, why should you remove member.
Are these NICs for corporate network?
What is your cluster interconnect?
You probably defined nr0 in /etc/inet.local so you just edit the file. Replace old NICs names with new.
You will probably have to rebuild the kernel before that.

Thanks,

Yes the NIC's I need to change it connect to public Network, and the interconnect we use Mermory channel.

Sorry But are you sure that I just have to
to modify /etc/netd.local

so the steps :
1 - sutdown one node
2 - replace NIC's
3 - boot the node and create the new NetRain
4 - then modify /etc/inetd.local
then shall I restart network service or reboot

It depends where you create (define) NetRain set?
Can you post /etc/inet.local and /etc/rc.config?
