[CentOS] script help

Try:

# find <parent dir> -type d -name dir-192.168.\* -exec mv \{\} `echo \{\} | sed 's/192\.168\./10\.0\./'` \;

That should recursively rename all directories from one naming scheme to another.

I run it but it has error. 

sed 's/^dir-192\.168/dir-10\.0/'`
sed: read error on dir-192.168.0.31: Is a directory
