changing esxi host ip address - any side effects?

Hello Members,

I have seen many ways to change an IP address of an exsi host - but no information on possible problems

if an ip address on a host is changed. I have two Standalones hosts, one with VCSA running as a vm,

and Three hosts that are on VCSA -I am required to change all ip addresses on this environment.

I am still trying to find out if I can or cannot change the IP of or VCSA - I do not need info on this as I have seen

several posts on doing (or not doing) this. I may have to build a new VCSA, - Still checking that.

Is it possible to change the ip address of the host in VCSA without impacting the vms on the host?

Should I change the ip address of the vm before changing the ip of the host (in VCSA or not).

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Oliver G.,

Is it possible to change the ip address of the host in VCSA without impacting the vms on the host? Yes, but you change it on the host.

Should I change the ip address of the vm before changing the ip of the host (in VCSA or not). It doesn't matter.
